CHERYL FISHER's [voc] latest CD is QUIETLY THERE [OA2 22133]. Fisher has chosen 12 songs [54:33] for mood and meaning. Her concept was to create an album for a mellow mood, an "album, letting its mellow mood merge with your own" which may be possible if you don't pay attention to the lyrics where the meaning doesn't make one think mellow, but rather, melancholy. The tunes here are from The Great American Songbook. She contributes one original, "Flower In The Sink", a waltzlike song of time passing and loss. Other material included on this 5/24&25/15 recording [Let There Be Love/You Go To My Head/Some Other Time/Here's To Life/You're Looking At Me] plus not well known songs by well known writers. John Stowell [gtr] and various others give effective backup on this very effecting recording.
