Reseña de álbum
Kelley Johnson is a veteran vocalist with an expressive alto who is willing to give a fresh sound to familiar songs while also tackling overlooked gems. Utilizing two different pianists including the brilliant Geoff Keezer (who has been very effective with singers) and the underrated John Hansen, two different bassists (Nathan Peck or Paul Gabrielson), and three drummers (Matt Jorgenseen, Jon Wikan, and Julian MacDonough), plus brass and reedman Jay Thomas as a guest on three tracks, Johnson has put together a delightful set. Her own arrangement of Abbey Lincoln's infrequently performed "Should've Been" has shades of Carmen McRae, while her medley of the show tune "Wouldn't It Be Loverly" (from My Fair Lady) and Lincoln's "Living Room" is very playful. "Moon River" has been recorded so often that it is in danger of overexposure, though the colorful backgrounds arranged by Wikan and Ingrid Jensen bring new life to this old chestnut. Johnson also proves her merit as a songwriter, penning or co-writing three songs, highlighted by her expressive, bluesy "Home."
