O’s Notes: This is an unusual project featuring Corky playing her harp with five featured vocalists singing. The band is never more than a trio (piano, bass and drums). Hale also sings on a few tracks and plays piano as well. Her first song is “The More I See You” with the trio. Sally Kallerman delivers a sultry rendition of “I’ve Got A Crush On You”, a piano duet. The music is simple and pure on “My Romance” sung by Tricia Tahara, another duet with Hale playing the harp. Simplicity is the magic formula that makes this session special showcasing the beauty of each singer’s voice. Brenna Whitaker shines on “When or Where”; Freda Payne sings “Black Is The Color of My True Love’s Hair” and Anna Salvas sings “I See Your Face Before Me”. It is fresh, different and it works!
