Too Much Woman
Virgin Records
| Performance 8 | Sound 8.5 |

Since Brigette McWilliams, daughter of former Rufus singer Paulette McWilliams, weighs no where close to three hundred pounds--trust us we've the got pictures to prove it--one tends to wonder exactly what could make her 'too much woman.' The answer, literally, is loud and clear.

There used to be a time when they called certain music 'soul music' for a reason. They did so because over the bass line and above the keys there was a singer who many times bared just that, their soul. Brigette McWilliams is the reincarnation of just such a songstress. From its opening moments, this album is, as it is aptly subtitled, 'a soundtrack for your days and an inspiration for your nights.' This is the background music you've got no problem listening to when the dinner party conversation turns dull. Because it, unlike the conversation, hasmeaning.

Featuring the work of many notable musicians, including, but not limited to, organist Billy Preston and Earth, Wind, and Fire alumni Al McKay and Larry Dunn, this album grooves from start to finish. The numerous instruments (Claire Fischer conducts a twenty-two piece orchestra on the sessions) give the listener myriad choices, and let a quality vocalist display exactly what we want to see and hear; her soul.
