O’s Notes: Lorrine starts with a country swagger for “Traffic and Weather”. Her harmonies are pure and they blend with the band well. Additional vocals come from Tierney Sutton on the opener. Cheryl Bentyne and Janis Siegel chip in on two tracks of which we preferred “Waiting Tables” that also includes a bright brass accompaniment. We appreciated the fills from guitarist Grant Geissman and pianist Shelly Berg. Russell Ferrante (p) wrote, plays and arranged a couple of tunes notably “Home Alone”. Feather sings about everyday occurrences with an upbeat spirit. Her witty approach is unique.
