Album Review

When Broadway actress Jessica Molaskey met jazz guitarist/vocalist John Pizzarelli, an engaging partnership (both musical and marital) was formed. Molaskey enjoyed the musical family she married into, including father and guitarist Bucky and brother-in-law/bassist Martin, all of whom join her on her first CD for a purely jazz label. Rounding out the band is the talented young violinist Aaron Weinstein, a swinging, sensitive player in the Stéphane Grappelli tradition whose maturity on his instrument belies his youth. One of Molaskey's greatest strengths is her effortless ability to convey the emotion of each song without overdoing it, while her vocals are always right on the money. She also chose quite a few pieces that have long fallen into obscurity, including the upbeat "Happy Habit," the brightly swinging "Hello Sunshine Hello" (which interpolates "You Are My Sunshine" and utilizes multi-tracked vocals), and "Breezin' Along with the Breeze." John joins her for an intimate vocal duet of "Tea for Two" that includes the oft-omitted verse, along with their warm original "Hiding in Plain Sight," the latter adding guest Larry Fuller on piano. She also chose a pair of Stephen Sondheim songs, offering a playful rendition of "Everybody Loves Louis" (from Sunday in the Park with George and the sentimental ballad "Isn't He Something" (from Bounce. Jessica Molaskey will warm an audience of any size with this superb release.

Customer Reviews

Bouyant!!

Great feel good c.d. Like a Django recording with a girl singer...the Pizzarelli family does it again!!!

Excellent vocals!

Though I'm more partial to the songs on Pentimento, this is Jessica Molaskey's best vocals. She has matured, and so has her singing. From track to track, the vocals are just amazing! All tracks on this album have Djurango-like arrangements, and all the tunes are charming. This makes for great dinner party music or a romantic evening, or just plain relaxing to. This artist is too overlooked. If you don't have some Jessica in your collection, you're missing out! Check out the samples on this album and her others, then buy at least a few tracks. You just gotta! This lady can sing!
