Feb 14, 2011Soulful, encompassing, at times even spine tingling. Strong words perhaps, but the more I listen the more the powerful vocals and melodies grip me.
Standouts on this album include "Lover Undercover" - grab your headphones, close your eyes and let the soaring chords, piano interludes and smoky vocals transport you. "Our Love Is Easy" blends a strong contemporary jazz feel with just the right amount of classical and orchestral accoutrements. "My One and Only Thrill" blurs the lines even further with jazz and ballad notes with a full sixty-second orchestral interlude halfway through the track.
Whether it's chill out Sunday afternoons, or evenings in front of the fire, add this to your playlist.… Expand
