Private Collection is the ninth studio album by American R&B/Jazz artist Miki Howard, released in June 2008 under her self-owned independent label and distributed by Araca Entertainment.[1]

The first five tracks are a blend of R&B/soul songs co-produced by Howard and producer/singer Chuckii Booker. Howard collaborated with pianist, composer and producer Brandon McCune to produce five of her favorite classic standards.[2]

Howard delivers her own interpretations with renditions of the jazz standard tracks, "Skylark", "Guess Who?" and "Days of Wine and Roses".[3]
