From Mosaic Contemporary website:
"Earl Klugh released Wishful Thinking directly after Two of a Kind, his second collaboration with Bob James, and it was one of his most successful recordings, both artistically and commercially. As much as any project, this classic proves that Klugh is one of the most distinctive artists in contemporary instrumental music.

Featuring brilliant guest musicians and wonderful arrangements by the likes of Johnny Mandel and David Matthews, Wishful Thinking's strong yet relaxingly lilting grooves and uniquely worldly musical perspective combine to present a recording that exhibits an intense yet laid-back sexiness. Whether he's performing hooky pop melodies ("Wishful Thinking") romantically orchestrated ballads ("A Natural Thing") or island grooves ("Tropical Legs"), one thing cuts deeply to the soul of the listener: the intimate touch of skin on nylon strings, the unmistakable sound of Earl Klugh."
