Paula is know on the move toward her second project. This cd will consist of classic jazz tunes with new songs.
There are nine songs on the cd. The favorites are "Najane", "Throw Away", "Fantasy", "Fear" & "In My Love". Blended with R&B "Najane" & "Throw Away" are smooth compositions about family troubles. The bass line drives the feel of the conflict in both songs. Marylyn wrote "Najane" and she used creative ways to describe pain and trouble between siblings. Marylyn and Paula wrote "Throw Away".
"Some tracks to listen for in my opinion are track 04 "Throw Away" based on a real life experience, states Paula. Track 07 "Life Ain't Easy" is the most relatable song for me personally. Track 08 "In My Love" is the best song on the whole cd, but it is good from start to finish." This review was given by a Chattanooga Tennessee native.
On several of the songs Marylyn and Paula did back up vocals on the cd Najane. Ms Dionne Osborne a graduate from Berklee back up Paula on "Fear".
