Myopic jazz critics trashed Romantic Journey simply because it contains so much R&B/pop, as opposed to judging its merits as an R&B/pop-oriented album.
Released in 1976 on Buddah Records, it featured bass player/vocalist Michael Henderson and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania vocalist Phyllis Hyman. The album reached number five on the US R&B chart and number one on the Jazz chart. The boat on the front cover belonged to actor John Wayne.

Norman Connors chronology. Romantic Journey (1977). This Is Your Life (1978)This Is Your Life1978. Romantic Journey is an album released in 1977 by Philadelphia, Pennsylvania jazz drummer Norman Connors. The album charted at number ten on the jazz albums chart.
The atmospheric title track represents a classic in the genre, with Michael Henderson's smooth vocals and bass playing, plus a solo on soprano sax by Gary Bartz. Connors does a masterful, slowed-down remake of the Stylistics' "Betcha By Golly Wow" with Phillis Hyman's bittersweet and romantic vocal.
Although R&B/pop is dominant, Romantic Journey does have two noteworthy jazz instrumentals - the Return To Forever-influenced title song and an interpretation of Pharoah Sanders' "Thembi.
