Just a wonderful expression of great music performed excellently. I love it and I play the CD all the time.

TOP 500 REVIEWERon 24 September 2010
Catherine's new album carries on from where her 2008 CD 'Sentimental Streak' left off - this is more traditional mainstream jazz played by a smallish band, that unlike the bands of many of her contemporaries contains horns. So this isn't the trance jazz of Norah Jones but (rather in the style of Cassandra Wilson)there are concessions to the blues with Willie Dixon's "Spoonfull", which rather radically is done with banjo and tuba and surprisingly it works. "Slow as molasses" features wonderful New Orleans-style brass (and banjo) and "Just because you can" features Hot Club-style violin (and banjo?!?) but apart from that I found much of the backing unmemorable. "November" is a nice ballad, "Troubled waters" is a nice laid-back blues and the album finishes on a high with the swinging "Struttin' with some BBQ". I'm afraid that for me this is very much background music, I find that Catherine's voice doesn't have the character of some of her contemporaries and while the backing is very tasteful and well-played it doesn't really encourage me to listen further.
