The first of the two tracks is “Jazz Woman,” which immediately establishes a cool groove. It is a playful look at a singing career, which starts in other musical realms and leads to jazz, with lines like “Danced on a stage in a furious rage/Screamed rock and roll and R&B soul” and “All through the winter I sang Donna Summer.” It all leads to that glorious discovery of jazz. This track features some excellent work on trumpet, and has a completely enjoyable feel throughout. The disc’s second track, “Move Over,” is a mellower number, with a smooth vocal approach. Check out these lyrics: “Let’s begin/I want in to your dreams and your madness/Schemes and your sadness.” This track features some wonderful work on both vibes and saxophone. There is something warm and inviting about this track. As she sings, “Let me in, let me stay,” we are welcoming her voice, her music into our homes and lives. And, yes, I’m looking forward to hearing the next disc of original material she releases.
