MUSIC REVIEW BY Joe Lang, Jersey Jazz

VIEW THE CD DETAIL PAGE

Something Good is the fifth album from Seattle-based vocalist KELLEY JOHNSON. Given that she made her first album in 1998, it is a sad commentary on the current music scene that a vocalist as good as Johnson has had such a limited recorded output. This ten-song program finds her with backing from pianist John Hansen, bassist Michael Glynn and drummer Kendrick Scott, with a few contributions from Jay Thomas on soprano and tenor saxes, and trumpet. Johnson has a voice that rests comfortably on your ears, has a wonderful sense of phrasing, and gives each lyric the respect that it deserves. The songs are well selected, and even those that are most familiar like "Anyone Can Whistle," "You do Something to Me," "Lullaby of Birdland," "Let's Do It," "Some Other Time," "Unforgettable" and "Something Good" are not ones that make you think, "Oh no, not that one again!" This is a nice set from a simply terrific singer.
