All Music Guide:
One of Rufus Thomas' many talented children, Vaneese Thomas enjoyed some big success in the late '80s as a solo vocalist on Geffen. Her debut LP, Vaneese Thomas, had a pair of Top 20 R&B hits in "Let's Talk It Over" and "(I Wanna Get) Close To You" in 1987. While the follow-up record didn't sustain that success, Thomas remained busy into the early '90s doing session work for Lenny White, Bob James, Carl Anderson, Freddie Jackson, Beau Williams, Melba Moore, and Sarah Dash.
