This collection comes from the apex in her development: summer 1975. Despite health struggles, Kral had reached her artistic summit. Her assets-a clear alto voice, perfect intonation, graceful phrasing, subdued drama, sure-footed rhythm, and an ever-expanding book of great material--had crystallized. She had the ideal musical mate, one who shared her devotion to the best possible manifestation of the music. Taken together with Just For Now (Jazzed Media 1003)--taped three months earlier--Second Chance shows Kral at work in top form.

If you missed this extraordinary artist when she moved among us, consider this album your second chance.
