This is an amazing album. It is tough for an artist to make a commercially successful career in this genre, but if anyone deserves to do so, Juliet Kelly does.
Every song on the album is a masterpiece, beautifully sung, supported by backing musicians of the highest calibre. Tony Kofi's sax playing is of particularly high quality, but in truth the four musicians and Juliet gel as a breathtaking, totally coherent unit.
This album can transport one in spirit to one of those exquisite small jazz clubs such as the 606 Club in Fulham; although not a live album, it has a totally live feel, full of energy and enthusiasm, spontaneity and improvisational skill.
The icing on the cake for an audiophile such as myself (Meridian CD player, ATC pre-amp and active loudspeakers) is that it is superbly recorded, one of the best technically recorded and engineered albums that I possess in fact. The double icing is, as others have mentioned, the version of Sade's Your Love Is King; it is hard to believe that anyone could improve on that masterpiece, but Juliet has done so.
This CD is being spun again and again in my player. Highly recommended.
