O’s Notes: Jazz vocalist Leslie Lewis performs ten classic tunes in front of the Gerard Hagen Trio. The mood is light and packed with romantic interludes. Special guest Gary Foster does a fine job with accents on sax and flute. Lewis has a pleasant voice that is easy to enjoy on tunes like “Day By Day”. Lewis adds some Latin flavor with a few Jobim tunes notably “Fotographia”. We also enjoyed “Speak Low” in a balanced session.
