Kathy Diamond Miss Diamond To You
- Words: Joshua P. Ferguson
- Label: Permanent Vacation
Kathy Diamond is the diva standard-bearer in the new disco movement. But on Miss Diamond to You, it's producer Maurice Fulton's penchant for tight disco drums, bubbling congas, boogie slap basslines, and dirty funk keys that shines through, creating a colorful canvas for Diamond's Chaka Khan-esque vocals to take a lead role. Standouts like "Over" recall Stevie Wonder at his funkiest while simultaneously lifting listeners into a whirlwind of deep organs and twinkling strings, and lovingly depositing them in a new stratosphere of cosmic boogie. Other notable moments include the supersonic batucada of "Until the Sun Goes Down" and the slo-mo filtered soul of "On & On."
