OA2, 2009, CD
Instrument: Female Vocals
Jazz Ruler Type: Ballads, Blues
O’s Notes: Gail has a wonderful voice and it is captured in full splendor for Here In The Moment, a collection of eleven fresh covers. The arrangements are very different giving standards like “Nature Boy” and “The Very Thought of You” a new life. All of the tunes are fresh with Pettis’ indelible marks. Gail sings in front of two different trios, both using drummer Mark Iverster. She also sings “Snap Your Fingers”, a duet with bassist Clipper Anderson to wrap a very good set.
