Orna is a female vocalist hailing from South Africa who has made something akin to a splash in Los Angeles, CA. Produced and arranged by talented bassist Brian Bromberg, this effort features a hodgepodge of stirring ballads amid equal parts samba and jazz-oriented motifs. In addition, the pristine sonic characteristics provide quite a bit of luster to the production when viewed as a whole. Here, the vocalist tackles standards such as "Nature Boy," "My Favorite Things," and Ray Noble's timeless ballad "The Very Thought of You." Not just another compilation of standards by an up-and-coming female jazz vocalist, Orna's affecting interpretations hit the mark in a rather grand way. Her near-perfect diction complements a warm and undeniably resounding mode of execution. She seemingly lives through the songs she sings, while kudos should be in order for her top-notch and duly sympathetic bandmates. In sum, this intriguingly captivating affair should enjoy extensive appeal.
ちょい聴きで、ロス在住のオルナの声の誘惑に負けて購入してしまったが、これがどうしてどうしてアルバム全体を通して申し分のないできばえ！！お薦めの曲は、コルトレーンのバラードでおなじみの"My One and Only Love"などはいかがでしょうか。
