Folksy-voiced Grete Skarpeid mixes originals, poetry and a standard together on this album that has her backed by Aruan Ortiz/p, Rob Waring/vib-perc, Cameron Brown/b and Gerald Cleaver/dr. Her delivery and style is reminiscent of 70s singers, as she gets elliptical like Joni Mitchell on "Like A Bird" and "Holding" while is ethereal like Judy Collins during "Singing Again" and the ethereal "Adam and Eve". Cleaver lays down a military beat to set the mood on the recitation of "Cats in Crete" and Ortiz is in gentle support for Skarpeid on a cozy "The Queen Inside This Room". The team does an upbeat read of "My Favorite Things" and goes dramatic on the tribal "Flying High". Bohemian nights.
