Gail Pettis was a practicing orthodontist who just started her singing career in ?02. I bet she had great music in the waiting room! Here, on her second release, she teams up with a pair of trios (Darin Clendenin-Randy Halberstadt/p, Clipper Anderson-Jeff Johnson/b, Mark Ivester/dr) for some impressively original treatments of jazz standards. She's got a mocha latte voice that's brewed just right on the dreamy and spacious ?I Thought About You? and the haltingly ruminative ?Night And Day.? She hangs onto the slow and slinky feel of ?Who Can I Turn To? perfectly, while showing she can snap it up with the swinging ?I Could Have Danced All Night.? Everything on this record sounds fresh and alive, sparkling like freshly polished teeth.
