Cheryl Fisher's voice exudes mature subtlety. Her sound is sensitive and well-formed and she's adept in making what she sings sound convincing in the manner of one of her mentors, Shirley Horn. Her instrumental support changes from track to track here. John Stowell provides deep electric guitar buzz to the tumbling "Flowers In The Sink" and a light-fingered acoustic bossa nova sound on "He Never Mentioned Love". His acoustic work on "Some Other Time" is also a real highlight. Meanwhile Stowell and pianist John Toomey buoy the classy swing of "Let There Be Love" nicely with flute and trumpet also making fun statements.
Fisher herself is excellent to hear whether on the warm Brazilian rhythms of "Quietly There" and "Never Mentioned Love", the lilting sadness of "I Never Went Away" or the wistful swing of "You're Looking At Me". She has a great talent for song interpretation.
