AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow:
This 1995 CD sampler has a dozen songs taken from eight of altoist David Sanborn’s Warner Bros. releases, including a 1985 version of “The Water Is Wide” (with Linda Ronstadt on vocal) that was not previously released domestically. A fine all-around set with the emphasis on passionate ballad statements, the CD is more for listeners unfamiliar with Sanborn than for more serious Sanborn collectors, who will prefer the complete original sets. Highlights include “Straight to the Heart,” “You Don’t Know Me,” and “I Do It for Your Love.”
