“Just The Two of Us” (1980’s Soul & Jazz)

Just the two of us
You and I
We look for love, no time for tears
Wasted water’s all that is
And it don’t make no flowers grow
Good things might come to those who wait

So smooth, cool, & suave! Hope ya’ll enjoy Bill Wither’s performance of “Just The Two of Us”.
Thought I’d also include Regina Belle’s brilliant rendition.
Sometimes it hits different when a woman sings it 🙂 None the less nothing beats the original, both are wonderful.

“If I Could” by Regina Belle (1993)

If I could
I’d protect you
From the sadness
In your eyes
Give you courage
In a world
Of compromise
Yes, I would

Definitely reminiscent of the great Whitney Houston. Just discovered the great Regina Belle, from New Jersey. Her song “If I Could” was released in 1993 under Peak- Concord Jazz Label. Such a powerful vocalist and song.

“Belle was born in Englewood, New Jersey. It was at Englewood’s Mount Calvary Baptist Church, and then Paterson’s Friendship Baptist Church (presided over by Belle’s uncle, the Reverend Fred Belle), that Belle began attracting attention with her vocal abilities. She sang her first solo in church at the age of eight. She attended Dwight Morrow High School, where she studied trombonetuba and steel drums.[8] After graduation, Belle studied opera at the Manhattan School of Music. She attended Rutgers University and became the first female vocalist with the school’s jazz ensemble. Belle’s musical influences include Phyllis HymanBillie HolidayShirley CaesarPatti LaBelle, and Nancy Wilson.[9] She was introduced to the Manhattans by New York radio DJ Vaughn Harper and began working as their opening act. She recorded the duet “Where Did We Go Wrong” with the group on their Back to Basics album, which helped to attract the attention of Columbia Records. She recorded a second duet, “Maybe Tomorrow (Four Tops song)“, which appeared on the B-side of “Where Did We Go Wrong”. They eventually signed her to a record deal.” – Wikipedia
