O’s Notes: A glance at the song list would suggest another collection of standards but Scozzesi has an inviting vocal style and very unique arrangements that make A Special Taste a standout album. She visits many styles especially Latin that is weaves into several tracks. She also incorporates her musicians into the fabric. Charlie Bisharat shines on violin on “One More Cup of Coffee” and guitarist Grant Geissman is featured on a couple of tunes notably “When Did You Leave Heaven”. Scozzesi swings with the band on “I’m Gonna Sit Right Down and Write Myself A Letter” our favorite tune of the set. But we found her unique approach and engagement in the mood of the music to capture our spirit.
