If it seems like jazz vocalist Garcia is stepping out of her comfort zone here, consider this. This twofer was recorded live in Japan over Christmas 30 years ago shortly after dropping her debut with Dr. Um and Marc Johnson. A spirited piano/voice romp where chances are taken and dark corners explored. Successfully. You gotta go all the way to Japan to hang out in a saloon this cool? A perfect example of putting the fun first and having it work.
