320 Coldhams Lane is a houseshare property in the heart of Cambridge, a stone’s throw from the Sainsbury’s and an enviable commute from both Addenbrooke’s Hospital and the Science Park.As 320 used to be a bed & breakfast, each room boasts its own ensuite shower and toilet plus communal use of fully kitted kitchen and laundry.After her departure from Virgin Records, It would be 10 years before she would release another solo effort.
The material on this CD ranges from excellent to routine, depending on who's writing and/or producing a particular song.
Hathaway doesn't always have fantastic material to work with, but when she does, the results are quite memorable.
The disc also spawned the hit “Baby Don’t Cry” and featured fan favorites “Somethin’ ” and “I’m Coming Back.” It was evident that Lalah not only had the voice, but the talent to carry on her father’s legacy while shaping her own musical destination.
Lalah distinctly set herself apart from other R&B artists of the time by making music that was true to her heart.
It was 1990 when Lalah made her music debut on Virgin Records with the self-titled album Lalah Hathaway, effortlessly fusing elements of R&B, Jazz and Pop.
21 years after the release of her first LP, her career continues to thrive.In 1994, Lalah released her much-anticipated 2nd album A Moment with “Let Me Love You” serving as the album’s lead single.A Moment saw Lalah exploring several music sounds including sampling elements of New Jack-Swing and funk, but not shying far away from her soul and jazz roots.The project also included the Sly & the Family Stone remake “It’s a Family Affair,” and the soul-stirring, fan favorite ballad “Separate Ways.” 1999 brought the release of the critically acclaimed duet CD The Song Lives On with legendary jazz musician Joe Sample.The songs “Fever” and “When Your Life Was Low” helped to broaden her audience and further establish her name with jazz music fans, while continuing to leave an impression on audiences worldwide.But when Hathaway had strong material to work with, it was clear that she had a lot of potential.
