5.0 out of 5 stars I love it Sept. 9 2003
Format:Audio CD
Brenda Russell, has a great soulful voice and this album has a jazz and R&B feel. everytime I listen to it, I love it. I have never gotten sick of it and I still have it on vinyl at home. The ballad "Piano In The Dark" is soulful and could picture listening to it anywhere. I recommend this album because you wont stop listening to it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Title track should be enough to buy this CD. June 15 2003
Format:Audio CD
"Piano In The Dark" was the song that sold this CD but "Le Restaurant" (which features a breezy sax solo by David Sanborn) and the title track are the best here. Personally, I feel that Brenda's original version of "Get Here" should have been a bigger hit.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mood Music June 18 2002
By David - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This album is one of the best if you like soulfull music from the late 80's. I will never forget the first time I heard "Piano In The Dark". I had just gotten measured for my tuxedo for my senior prom in early May of 1988. When I walked out of the "Mr. Tux" shop and got into my new car, I turned on the radio and heard this piano and synthesizers start up and it gave me a chill that went up my neck. After hearing this song I had to find out who sang it and went to a record store and bought the cassette single immediately. The video is just as great with Brenda singing her heart out in what looked like an old cafe with rain pouring down outside and in the background playing the piano in the dark was none other than Joe Esposito. I had lost all of my 80's music and pretty much had forgotten it throughout the 90's. But I am once again collecting music from the 80's and this song is at the top of my list. I suggest it for a romantic dinner or dancing. If it doesn't take you back to the late 80's then nothing will.

4.0 out of 5 stars Somewhat uneven, but still engaging, breakthrough album Sept. 5 2001
By Paul Hixenbaugh - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I still remember the first time I saw the video for "Piano In The Dark" on Night Tracks (remember that show?). I was blown away by the poignant vocals, the incredible lyrics, and the cool jazzy vibe that underpinned that amazing song. I still get chills every time I listen to "Piano In The Dark", even though it has been 13 years since this album came out!
While "Piano In The Dark" is far and away the best song on "Get Here", the rest of the album is engaging and soulful. The stirring ballad "Get Here" became an anthem during the Gulf War because of the sweet but not sappy lyrics and its melodic simplicity. "Le Restaurant" is an amazing jazz ballad with David Sanborn on saxophone. Lite jazz great Dave Koz also guests on "Just A Believer". Other noteworthy songs include the funky existential dance hit "Gravity", and a trio of up-tempo pop songs. If you like Basia, Oleta Adams, Sade, or Anita Baker, you should love this album.
"Get Here" does veer a bit over the musical map, covering jazz, pop, disco, and 80's rock, but it's a worthwhile trip. Brenda Russell writes very honest, emotional music that is engaging and exciting. If you enjoy this album, you should also check out her 2000 album "Paris Rain", where her lush jazz songs really flower into an amazing experience, or her 2001 ultimate collection, which includes many of her best works.

4.0 out of 5 stars One of the best soulful voices in the business..... June 18 2000
By J. Bilby - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
...I would agree this collection of songs hardly made Brenda Russell a household name but she did put out a great track from this record "Piano in the dark" and I did hear that song on the radio for several years after. She may not have the pipes of Whitney Houston but there are very few singers that can melt your heart with their voices and Brenda Russell given the right material and direction can.

4.0 out of 5 stars Down From The Dark Sept. 16 2004
By Michael Kerner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Sometimes, a song constantly seems to put you in the mood for love, and the feeling of life. There are just some great guilty pleasures songs that really seem to do that. Brenda Russell really does that from the heart. Her 1988 song Piano In The Dark is a very elequent and bold song that really does talk to you. The feeling of love and lust really goes together with Brenda's voice and the way she tickles the ivories on this song. Nevertheless, it is really just a shame that Brenda hasn't gotten as successful with the industry after this beautiful masterpiece of a song. Hopefully, someone else is singing this song right now.
