 Critical Noir: Ms. Phyllis Hyman - Music   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
Hyman initially signed as a solo artist with Buddah Records, which had difficulty finding the right material to make her the crossover star they wanted her to be.
Hyman received a Tony Award nomination in 1981 for her work in Sophisticated Ladies but Arista, her label at the time, failed to capitalize on her new found mainstream popularity, instead trying to re-capture the dance-floor magic of "You Know How to Love Me," her first "hit" for the label.
Hyman's depression is telling in that the male-centered recording industry has rarely dealt with how gender impacts how artists are perceived, or with the way various artists choose to deal with the pressures of celebrity and the constant need to please fans, producers and AandR folk.

Before leaving this world for the next, the late Phyllis Hyman contributed her voice in singing some of the most beautiful ballads I have ever heard.
This album, a short compilation of her greatest hits, was the album that introduced me to the legend that Hyman was and forever would be.

 AMZ - December, 1999 - Phyllis Hyman
Although her silky register was always quite striking, Hyman has remained one of the more elusive elite among the disco-era divas.
Though virtually unusable by the current rash of sampling pirates (Hyman's work was never about the groove, unless you're talking between-the-satin-sheets, midnight grooves), Hyman's material has been re-evaluated recently by a lot of adult contemporary DJs who can now easily link her vocal stylings to singers like Diana Krall or Vanessa Rubin.
The current correlation, of course, is striking, as Hyman's soulful shifts and breathy phrasing of the Motown pop nugget "Betcha By Golly, Wow," turns that tune's stunning, descending chorus into something near religious.
