O’s Notes: There is nothing more powerful than the strong bond of a lengthy loving relationship. Vocalist VR and her producer, bassist and husband of 40 years, Putter Smith have enjoyed strong bonds at home, on stage and in the studio. This romance is the subject of Beautiful Love, a dozen newly arranged covers from the American songbooks. VR works her range to deliver meaningful lyrics on top of a fine musical backdrop. Dave Koonse (g), Gary Foster (sax) and Isla Eckinger (tb, vibes) are among the strong cast who support Smith on this effort. Highlights are “Easy Living” with Nolan Shaheed (t) and “Ruby”.
