O’s Notes: Chicago based singer and producer Joanie Pallatto is a passionate storyteller with blended instrumentation featuring guitarist Fareed Hague on her latest release. She opens up with a touch of bossa nova that is as beautiful as the colors on the cover of the album. She visits many themes including church on “The Confessional”, her dreams on “My Original Plan”, the reminiscent “Almost 65”, and the romance of “Jon’s Place”. We also enjoyed “The Photograph” featuring trumpeter Bobby Lewis.
