Darden Purcell has an effortless swing to her voice, teamed with all star vibist Joe Locke as well as her own team of Shawn Purcell/g, Todd Simon/p Jeff Reed/b and Todd Harrison/dr. She displays her clarity on an intimate and emotive meeting with and Locke Simon on "You've Changed", making one wish for an entire album as such. Likewise, her duo with guitarist Purcell on "It's A Most Unusual Day" shows that she looks good in nylons. In the larger band format, she's a bundle of fun on "Taking A Chance On Love", bopping with delight around Reed on " Chatterbox" . Gentle with "A Cottage For Sale", she glides along the "Poinciana" pulse of "I Concentrate On You" while slinking away for "Love's Got Me In A Lazy Mood". She could work for the UN as a first class interpreter.
