In isolation or in groups this album contains fantastically performed songs sung with passion and at times great restraint. I love the Todd Rundgren song 'Pretending to care'. There are plenty of great covers here played and sung by a lady who has one of the great current voices in jazz. If you can get to see her live, she'll knock your socks off!
I prefer to listen to these tracks in batches and although briliiantly performed some of the songs would not be my first choice –but then it's not my album, so shut up.
