Her voice is lovely and pure, but there’s something tactile going on with the way she burrows deep to discover what emotions are really being considered in the lyrics. That alone elevates her from a mere singer with a beautiful voice to someone who really wants to create the template for everyone else who comes afterward and sings these classics of the future, classics that were first–and hopefully–made famous by her.
Vivacious vocalist Judy Wexler shines a spotlight on outstanding contemporary songwriters in this luminous new jazz collection. Some of Southern California’s top musicians play on this marvelous album, but it’s Wexler’s vibrant vocals, her heartfelt interpretations of these great songs, that make this record so exceptional. She exhibits a rare combination of intelligence, sensitivity and technique.”
