This new release by soprano Patrice Michaels on Cedille records is one of the most original, innovative, and adventurous recordings to come along in quite some time! Each track contains a delightful surprise, a revelatory audio experience, and all are sung in Michaels’ warm, rich lyric soprano and shaped with her patrician musicianship, her consummate interpretive intelligence, and her considerable mastery of improvisation and other jazz techniques.
This Cedille release is first rate all the way: beautiful singing, stunning instrumentals, and a coherent and classy program. It is a recording to play and play again! Most highly recommended! © 2014 Fanfare Read complete review
