Album Review

Boasting an impressive range and a big, slightly husky voice, Grace Testani showed considerable promise as a scat singer, lyricist and interpreter of others' lyrics on her rewarding debut album, Something's Coming. This post-bop CD (which Testani recorded in 1994 and released on her own Grace Notes label a few years later) indicated that she wasn't content to play it safe in her choice of material; "But Beautiful" may have found its way to countless jazz albums, but not many jazz singers have tackled Stephen Sondheim & Leonard Benstein's "Something's Coming," Bronislaw Kaper's "Invitation" or Randy Weston's "High Fly" (for which she embraces Jon Hendricks' lyrics). Testani adds her own thoughtful lyrics to Chick Corea's "Windows" and Kenny Barron's "Sunshower," and on Bill Withers' "Ain't No Sunshine," she shows how well a soul classic from 1971 can work in a jazz setting. Although not well known, Something's Coming made it clear that Testani was someone to keep an eye on.
