Chaka Khan had one of the strongest and most nuanced voices of any R&B singer of her era, and she did translate that to some cool jazz-flavored songs like "A Night in Tunisia" and "Papillion (Hot Butterfly)," but she can't carry most of the material in this set. A number of songs like "Them There Eyes" and "My Funny Valentine" pale in comparison to many others. The sound and video quality are also poor, as this was recorded in a club. The only memorable part is when she makes a mild diss of Dionne Warwick's Psychic Friends Hotline (this was made in 1993), and her general onstage demeanor, which is self-effacing and fun. She also looks beautiful. Unfortunately I can't say I recommend this for singing.
