One of the greatest records so far from the lovely Elizabeth Shepherd
– a set that's got all the careful charm and jazzy swing of her own self-penned efforts – yet which also features Shepherd
taking on a host of songs from years past! The approach is great – as these well-chosen tunes are completely transformed in the hands of Elizabeth
's work on the piano and Fender Rhodes – and by her soulful yet swinging vocals – often backed by a cool acoustic combo who really know hot to keep things interesting. As with previous records, there's a few modern inflections, yet never too many to get in the way – and titles include "Poinciana", "Love For Sale", "Lonely House", "Feeling Good", "Sack Of Woe", "Midnight Sun", "Buzzard Song", and "Born To Be Blue".
