MUSIC REVIEW BY George W Harris, Jazz Weekly

VIEW THE CD DETAIL PAGE

Gentle toned vocalist May Okita creates gentle sonatas with the spartan support of guitarist Larry Koonse and pianist Josh Nelson on this delicate collection of standards. Her sandied tone is attractively intimate with Nelson on a alluring "Let's Face the Music and Dance" while Nelson provides streamlike ripples for a contemplative "Both Sides Now." A troubadour'd take of "Detour Ahead" has Okita in a breathy form as she floats over Koonses classy strings, and is fluffy with the two on a read of the rarely done Ellington piece, the cheerful "Blue Rose." She is coy while cooing on "What A Difference A Day Makes" and conversant on "Shen She Loved Me." Unpretentiously attractive.
