Format: Audio CD
The audio quality of this recording and Rachelle Ferrell's Full Octave Range vocals is simply mystical and breathtaking; collectively these positives will certainly enhance your listening pleasure. It should also be noted, that Ms Ferrell also appears on the "Manhattan Project" Jazz DVD.

This re-released album from Rachelle, boasts the like's of musicians: Stanley Clarke, Wayne Shorter, Michel Petrucciani (Deceased) and Lenny White etc. However, it's Rachelle's effortless supreme talent that cohesively anchor's this eleven track album...ADD THIS RECORDING TO YOUR ALBUM COLLECTION WITHOUT DELAY!!!

First of all, I liked this CD, but was not exhillarated like most of reviewers on American version of Amazon.....

Extraordinary vocal capacity is but one of the prerequisits of a great singer; for instance, compared to Ferrell, Billie Holiday had limited vocal range, but her rhythmic abilities, subtle melodic imagination and the quality of tone (timbre) made her a divine singer... She had, I guess and inborn tallent for interpretation, like Sarah Vaughan, Louis Armstrong, Jack Teagarden, Jon Hendricks and other great jazz vocalists.
Rachelle Ferrell is very strong on vocal technique, her sense of rhythm is excellent but somehow her interpretations are not fully satisfactory to me. It would be silly to speak of "the soul" of her singing, but at points, although fine, it sounds almost mechanical, with insufficient expressiveness in slower tempos, where her vocal gymnastics cannot be so prominent...

I'm sorry to hear she mostly recorded R$B music; this album shows promise for becoming a true vocal giant some day....
