Lorez Alexandria – vocals George Eskridge – guitar John Young – piano Israel Crosby – double bass Howard McGhee – trumpet Vernel Fournier – drums. Although i don't dig vocal jazz as much as other things, i really dig this one. 'Nature Boy' and 'Softly as in a Morning Sunrise' are just great and Lorez' versions are among the best versions of theese songs i know, as well as 'Almost Like Being in Love' or 'Detour Ahead'. The touch of Young is light and cool as well as the playing of the other musicians and somehow fir perfect to the warm singing of Lorez Alexandria. I totaly dig her singing in the lower registers and when she moves from below to higher notes and back like she does on 'Detour Ahead'. Don't hesitate if you can find this record, it's beautiful. - jeunjean, rateyourmusic. Wow this album was a pleasant surprise!
