Fluff-oriented dates like BJ4 were major hits in the steadily growing quiet storm market, and the keyboardist wasn't about to tamper with the formula he had perfected. With the calculated Heads, he once again threw creativity and artistic integrity to the wind and gave his audience exactly what he thought it wanted: lightweight, innocuous popjazz that functioned primarily as background music.
