Whispering River, 2013, CD
Instrument: Female Vocals
Jazz Ruler Type: Ballads, Blues
O’s Notes: A quick glance at the song list might suggest this is just another ordinary collection of standards! But a closer look reveals a generous dose of originals sprinkled among the eleven songs. Listening reveals Bessier has a strong rich voice that gets better as the set progresses starting with a stirring rendition of “God Bless The Child”. Jay Thomas adds shadowing on trumpet and sax along with a solid foundation from the rest of the band. Robin’s debut is far from ordinary and places her among young talent to watch.
