O’s Notes: Vocalist Kris Adams sings about people, places and things in her life. Her voice is pristine and is paired with unique arrangements by coproducer Greg Hopkins (t) to freshen classic tunes and make them her own. Kris shares the stage with her strong team of musicians allowing them extended solos that complement her program. Electric bassist Fernando Huergo shines on “The Glide” as does Shannon LeClaire (sax) on “What’s Your Story Morning Glory?” We also dug Adams’ scatting on “Pulled Pork”. There is a lot to enjoy on Longing, a fine session by Adams and her team.
