Review
Judy Wexler takes the best of the vocal jazz tradition and spins it into something new and exciting. Her voice is warm and intimate -- perfect for the kind of lyrical storytelling you expect from a great jazz singer. But the songs she chooses are not the usual suspects. With her distinctive and expressive sound, Wexler breathes new life into songs -- from lesser known gems to underserved tunes from the Great American Songbook. Her beautifully subtle approach to the melodies, harmonies and rhythms of each song create an atmosphere throughout this CD that is fresh and deeply personal.

The arrangements and playing by piano great Alan Pasqua are a perfect complement to Wexler's style. This music clearly demonstrates why Grammy-nominated Pasqua is widely respected for his gorgeous modern harmonic sensibilities. With contributions from top tier musicians like Bob Mintzer, Bob Sheppard, Larry Koonse, Walt Fowler, Alex Acuna, Darek Oles, and Steve Hass, the music here shows what happens when some of the best, most creative forces in jazz work together. This recording is the culmination of Wexler's vision and demonstrates why she is one the finest jazz vocalists on the scene today.
