I like that the Chaka song has that Scritti Politti groove, but it definitely sounds more dated in retrospect. The Roberta Flack joint, although not as catchy, has some nice low end and sounds like it could still get some burn on the Quiet Storm. Love of a Lifetime sounds like a throwaway song on the soundtrack to some mid-80's modern jazz dance movie.

IDK I just kinda use The Quiet Storm as a vague and all-encompassing term for platforms that still got that adult contemporary-smooth jazz vibe going.
In the Bay, it was 102.9 KBLX which I know pivoted more in a throwback r&b lane but that's just the new oldies/quiet storm format as we get older and older and the music we grew up on gets older and older.
