"Yes! IT was the "Quiet Storm" on WHUR...growing up in the early to mid '80's in D.C. I heard this song many times and, for YEARS, have been trying to figure out who it was and what it was called! Thanks a million, this is a FANTASTIC song, and I may have gotten a kiss or ??? because of it in the 8th grade :-)"
After Many Years this Star Still Shines!

"I finally received "Without Rhyme or Reason" and it is still a great masterpiece! WHUR in Washington D.C. always played "The Image of You" during the "Quiet Storm" and I never got tired of hearing it. I totally agree with one of the reviews, "It is one of the most beautiful ballads ever" - and - may I add, ranks in the top ten ballads of all time! My only disappointment is - not the album(s), but I wished Scott had pursued more of a contemporary and traditional jazz direction on his last project. His blend of styles (George Benson, Earl Klugh, James Taylor,and Michael Franks) on the Without Rhyme or Reason and The Gift of Thirst project(s) is simply amazing! Scott can come from many different directions: jazz, pop, R&B, and folk. However, I'd hoped his last album had more of a solid jazz flavor with a touch of R&B. Maybe an instrumental (displaying his guitar virtuosity)or two with his keyboard extraordinaire brother Keith Jarrett. If Scott had pursued more of a jazz path he would have been - without a doubt - a lot more successful! Ironically, Scott will probably end up being the most famous of his musical clan because of this one tune - "The Image of You". Throughout history there has always been one song that was either an anathema or blessing to an artist because of its exceptionalism! "Thriller" was a curse to Michael Jackson because he was never able to overcome it! "Pachelbel Cannon in D Major" also comes to mind. Let's hope this is not the case for Scott Jarrett. "The Image of You" can either doom or propel Mr. Jarrett. I believe it is the latter because Scott is a genius with exceptional musical ability! And - of course - it doesn't hurt being from a family that is a musical juggernaut! Either case, Scott has carved out his place in history! All in all, Scott Jarrett is a tremendous talent and you will not be disappointed in any of his music! Btw, "Pictures", "Without Rhyme or Reason", and "Doctor/Nurse" are my favorites! Also, give his new ablum "The Gift of Thirst" a try! You won't regret it! Thanks Amazon for making this CD available! It is amazing that this "Masterpiece" is not available on ITUNES."
