Hold it! Don't skip any track on this tantalizing Jazz journey. It's a winning recording not to be missed. Vocalist Deborah Winters and arranger Peter Welker embody the jazz soul of their tight collaboration - a truly ideal partnership. Deborah's fresh interpretations and voice, Peter's bright creative arrangements and feature solos calculated against the charts are executed with melodic clarity and high caloric energy.

I strongly suggest checking out the first two or three selections promptly to sense the core of the music. Dig the whole band's deep passion - the inner ferment explosions. You can easily perceive how Deborah's singing reflects the seductive logic and artistry of jazz. As legendary jazz pianist Errol Garner once said: "Playing is like life…either you feel it or you don't."

In the tradition of telling stories via singing jazz, Deborah personifies her stories with inward feeling and jazz attitude. She evokes traces of Billie Holiday, the supreme storytelling female jazz vocalist. A Deborah imperative is the premium value of featuring the melody…"I want to tell a story - the lyrical content - and be able to stretch out harmonically and be adventuresome while staying true to the melody." Deborah is clearly a proponent of elasticity and daring.

There is, in my view, a connection to Aristotle's reference to art. He wrote: "The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things but their inward significance."

No wonder Deborah Winters and the Peter Welker band breathe as one!
