Album Review

Ellyn Rucker is a strong enough pianist that she does not really need to sing, and she is a talented enough vocalist that she would be a popular attraction if she did not play a note of music. The Denver-based pianist-vocalist is equally skilled in both areas as shown on this Capri set, her debut as a leader.

A special bonus is a three-song "Solo Medley."
