LA based vocalist Cathy Segal-Garcia teams up with pianist Phillip Strange for a double disc'd concert in Japan back in 1992, finally seeing the light of day. Segal-Garcia is a rich interpreter of lyrics, full of richness and emotion, and Strange the perfect partner with his rich chords of support. The too delve deeply into a passionately agonized "You've Changed" , with Strange stretching out on a bluesy "God Bless The Child". Due to the recording taking place in December, there are a handful of cozy Christmas tunes as well, including "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town" and "White Christmas", holding their own no matter the season. Strange pulsates deftly under Segal-Garcia on "Desifinado" and the two are lusciously alluring for "The Nearness of You". What took this one so long?
