Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I have only a smattering of jazz in my collection so I'm by no-means a fan of the genre. With this in mind I found Melody's album very accessible; I won't compare her directly to Norah Jones but Norah does provide a useful yardstick here. If you like what Norah does then you will find this a little up-tempo and a bit more jazzy; if you don't like what Norah does because you find it sombre then the wider dynamic range and depth might well appeal.
I really liked the quality of the production of the album too - I have mid range gear but I would image that a nice Linn or Naim system would make this sound really special. The deep luxurious bass notes, cool sax and oboe really sound very nice.
There is only one track I'm not mad about, which isn't bad for an album these days though at only 33 minutes it's not the longest album in the world.
Overall the album is quite an unexpected pleasure; my wife said exactly the same thing!
