Arranged By – Chaka KhanWritten-By, Arranged By – Rod Temperton. Companies, etc. Produced For – Quincy Jones Productions. Very good and nice album. This album tastes like more. I got a hold of a copy in 1984. Really liked it. For me "Any Love" stands out. Mellow song with a strong vocal string on it. Very groovy & mellow yet powerfull. Also "Do You Love What You Feel" is worth listening to. Very groovy and strong album. Reply Notify me 1 Helpful.
Masterjam finds them back together, renamed Rufus and Chaka, with Quincy Jones producing the effort. The most striking thing about Masterjam is that is doesn't sound like a trademark Rufus effort. Jones' production style is so strong that the band's individual sound is all but lost
