Avoiding the heavy production and vocal overkill that have overtaken much of R&B, Davina opts for an airy, minimalist approach on Best of Both Worlds, weaving her slender voice around a bass, drums, and occasional keyboard. Even so she manages to find a groove and stay there, making this a special debut. B+
