"Since admiring Howard Hewett's voice as the lead singer of the group Shalamar I looked for an album which totally showcased the power,range and beauty of this man's voice. I decided to purchase It's Time. With no exaggeration,every track on this album is a masterpiece. This is Howard Hewett with his superb voice at its absolute soul tingling BEST! JH"

"Five SOULFUL Stars!! Outstanding performances by an R&B and soul icon. Howard Hewett has one of the most distinctive, powerful, and passionate singing voices and he's a 'singer's singer' in the classic tradition of Jeffrey Osborne and Peabo Bryson. And "It's Time" is a triumph of a "quiet storm" love song CD. If you're planning a romantic evening, this is the one to go to first, after dinner, with the repeat button engaged. No uptempo dance songs, just mellow, groovy love songs of today and yesterday and a victorious inspirational ending. Mr Hewett been a busy man since his off and on relationship with "Shalimar", the 1970's and 80's Grammy-winning R&B and dance supergroup (Hewett with Jeffrey Daniel, the lovely Jody Watley, and others like Miki Free) that was the rage in the US and Britain and even influenced Michael Jackson. (Question: where did Michael Jackson get the Moonwalk? Answer: Shalimar 'body-popper' Jeffrey Daniel who taught it to him). Mr Hewett has also been producing, writing, and recording solo and has always been an "A-list" special guest with a galaxy of other stars, most recently with Teena Marie on Congo Square, Norman Connors on Star Power and rising star Antoinette on Verbal Crush. Now, finally we get his latest solo CD and his voice is AWESOME, producing lovely, heartfelt, romantic, and inspirational music.

The 'best of the best' begins with "Crystal Clear" with Hewett soaring and vamping over the bouncy beat of this love song, whipping up a firestorm of passion. The overwhelming beauty of "This Love is Forever" finds Hewett in falsetto mode and totally convincing. "Your Body Needs Healin' " is prime material for nationwide "quiet storm" radio stations giving step-by-step advice on how to conduct an evening of love. Then he turns up the heat even more with wonderful versions of Average White Band's funky hit "A Love of Your Own" and Marvin Gaye's fantastic, seldom-attempted "Just To Keep You Satisfied" (so good it's scary) which shows both the Gaye influence on Hewett and also how different they are. Perhaps best of all is the show-stopping "How Do I Know I Love You" (that went straight to my iPod). The CD ends with the celestial inspiration of "Amazing Grace" and the solid advice of "Call His Name", reminding us of Mr. Hewett's gospel influences and successes. Definitely one of the BEST soul/R&B CDs of the year and clearly Grammy-worthy. Howard Hewett is an amazing singer and this gets MY Highest Recommendation.
