Album Review

Nancy Kelly has often found herself compared to Dianne Schuur, and the comparison rings true on Singin' and Swingin', a highly arranged CD that has as much to do with pop as it does with jazz. The singer (who has a charming quality to her voice) isn't a hardcore, true-blue improviser, but she does provide some decent scat singing on occasion. Kelly gets into a jazz groove on Duke Pearson's "Jeanine" and Cole Porter's "It's Alright With Me," while her take on Fats Waller's "The Joint Is Jumpin'" isn't unlike the sort of cabaret-influenced jazz Susannah McCorkle would do.

Although not fantastic and not very challenging, Singin' and Swingin' is a pleasant, if conventional, release that has its moments.
