Review by Amy Lotsberg Producer of Collected Sounds
The name of the CD had me worried, Twilight and Blues. While I love twilight (no, not that ‘Twilight’-no, the time of day) I do not like blues. However, I’m happy to say this record is actually jazz. It’s that grown up sophisticated style that makes me feel like I should have a martini in my hand and be talking about an art showing I just saw.
While I am nowhere near that mature, I can pretend, and this is just the album to help me do that.
It’s instrumental, piano based. I’m actually glad there are no vocals, that’s one less thing the jazz people can yell at me about in my critique. She’s a fantastic piano player and there are a good deal of horns as well.
There are a couple of songs that have ‘blues’ in the title and they’re probably among my favorites!
The songs are all wonderful and I wouldn’t change a thing. Great record!
