Beautiful, heartfelt and swinging renditions of timeless songs that take us on a musical and emotional journey. Wonderfully played by the musicians accompanying and fabulously sung by Janet Stevenson. I am now going to get the CD!!' - Anita Wardell: Winner BBC Best of Jazz, 2006 "I have enjoyed your new CD very much...the cover, song choices, mood of the CD. Are all so nice - you sound very relaxed too. Congratulations." - Roseanna Vitro: 2011 Grammy nominee & jazz educator "I really like and appreciate your ballad lyric interpretations. You know how to get into a lyric and not just sing "hip' stuff to be cool... Nice arrangements, great players, and a stellar choice of material... My favorite tracks are 4 (The Island) & 10 (You Must Believe in Spring). Bravo, not the easiest tunes to vocalize." - Ted Howe: composer, pianist & jazz educator Personnel: All vocals: Janet Stevenson Kevin Bales (piano on 1,2,4,5,7,9) James "Jez" Graham (piano on 3, 6, 8, 10) Robert Dickson, Bass Marlon Patton, Drums/Percussion.
