 Notes & Reviews
 
Rhonda Apple and Dale Britt have worked together as a duo since 1998 in primarily Ocean City, Maryland. This is their sixth recording together. Half of the tunes are their choice favorites. Half were requested. The amazing drummer Alan Dale and hugely talented bassist Tom Baldwin join in the fun on mostly Old Standards and two of Dale's original tunes. Drawing on his listening prowess Dale Britt has developed his own, mature style that is rememiscent of Bill Evan, Hampton Hawes, Andre Previn and Oscar Peterson. It is possible to hear snippets of each in the same improvisation. The voice of Rhonda Apple has been compared to Linda Eder, Barbra Streisand, Jane Monheit and Diana Krall with it's crystal clear delivery and expressive style. She becomes the song, the emotions, the lyrics with every fiber of her being. If you like traditional jazz, crooners and easy listening, you'll love this CD.
