O’s Notes: Wendee makes her debut singing fourteen classics from the Great American Songbooks. The music really swings with a strong quintet behind her including Ken Peplowski on clarinet and tenor sax. Glick shines on music of all tempos. Upbeat pieces like the opener and title track allow her spirit to shine through adding to the enjoyment of the piece. On more romantic pieces like “How Deep Is The Ocean” you can experience the warmth and beauty of her voice. She does a vocal duet, “Centerpiece” with pianist Stan Heck that has smooth harmonies, a warm sax solo plus some complementary scatting that really hits the spot. The more we listened, the more we liked. Stay tuned!
