This Kind Of Love" ranks among Simon's most personal albums as well as one of her most stylistically diverse excursions. The CD is co-produced by Simon, Frank Filipetti and Jimmy Webb, who is also responsible for many of the arrangements. Filipetti worked his talent as the engineer as well as producer. The musical inspiration of the CD comes from Simon's fascination with Brazilian music, whose rhythms are subtly infused throughout.
