Gladys Knight has been underrated for years. She's one of the great R&B singers.

Showing even more range, Gladys has jumped on the "standards" bandwagon with her brand new CD, "Before Me."

Yes, you've heard these jazzy classics before:

  1. Do Nothing Till You Hear From Me
  2. The Man I Love
  3. Good Morning Heartache
  4. Since I Fell For You
  5. God Bless The Child
  6. This Bitter Earth
  7. I Got It Bad (And That Ain't Good)
  8. Someone To Watch Over Me
  9. But Not For Me
  10. I'll Be Seeing You
  11. Stormy Weather
  12. Come Sunday

They are the great songs of Billie Holiday, Sarah Vaughan, and Ella Fitzgerald, among others.

"Before Me" is the kind of collection you spin to set the perfect mood for a special evening.

Gladys is in perfect form. The songs resonate personality with her warm and earthy phrasing.

Song stylist for the ages...absolutely.

Every Gladys Knight fan should love, "Before Me." The collection reveals another facet of a vocal legend - a strand of jazz that's good for the soul.
