Lighthearted tune with a brooding undercurrent. Shrire interacts well with her bandmates, especially in how she peppers her vocal inflections across piano lines. Very likable.
Celebrating a fresh and vibrant take on the jazz vocal tradition, the London-born, South African-raised, New York-based singer has compiled a collection of songs that are unified by Schrire’s distinct mark as an arranger and interpreter. Personnel: Nicky Schrire (vocals), Nick Paul (piano), Sam Anning (bass), and John Goldbas (drums).
Freedom Flight/Blackbird; Journey; Cosmic Love; If Ever I Would Leave You; Ode To A Folk Song; Sleep Away; The Swimming Song; E Preciso Perdoar; Me, The Mango Picker; Shower The People; Don't Think Twice, It's All Right.
