While he contributes drums and percussion on a few tracks, Connors is mostly the executive here, arranging and producing his way through the landscape of magical quiet storm soul. It's an album of mostly old hits redone in a contemporary urban groove style, finding new life in famed hits like Sade 's "The Sweetest Taboo" and "Walk on By," but the real heart and soul here for Connors is the Bryson -charmed redux of "You Are My Starship," a chart-topping track he produced for Michael Henderson that became something of a genre anthem and was later sampled by LL Cool J and Snoop Dogg.
Adding emotional weight to the track is a tender sax solo by Marion Meadows. There's a lot of Star Power here just as the title promises, but Connors holds it all together and keeps the egos in check with style and Merci-Mercy - Amor Para Siempre / Love Is Forever to spare.
