This is a wonderful surprise. I have to check out Dave's album because I am a huge fan of Dana Glover. (I was afraid she was gone for good). "Thinking Over" (produced by Matthew Wilder) was a gorgeous song, and even her (slightly cheesy) ballad "It is You I have Loved" from Shrek was great. Thanks for the info!
Edit: Finally got my hands on his album. Dana sounds good and I loved having something new from her, but the song is rather forgettable.

Dana Glover is a terrific vocalist... so much soul pours out from her. I got to see her live back when her CD "Testimony" came out and she was even better in person. I had been wondering what she's been up to since then... and was stunned to see her as a guest on Desperate Housewives a few months ago. They had her on as a neighbor who was trying to break the monotony by working as a lounge singer, and then she performed this on the show with Dave Koz. I think lyrically it's a great song and it grew on me after a few listens for sure. Currently this is #13 on the Smooth Jazz songs chart in Billboard, who strangely does not list Dana in the song credits. Figures! Glad to see it going for AC adds... hope it gets some!
Billboard finally added Dana's credit to the chart... it's up to #9 on Smooth Jazz songs.
