O’s Notes: This is our first encounter with Chicago-based Erin McDougald but she’s been making delightful music since 2000 and she’s now locked in our radar! Cool ballads and a swinging band make this a solid encounter! Dave Liebman (sax), Tom Harrell (t) and Mark Sherman (vibes) make notable contributions. Erin’s exacting vocals and cool arrangements with Rob Block (p, g) make“Outside the Soirée“a winner. Highlights are “Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most”, “Don’t Be On the Outside“, “Midnight Sun” and “Brother, Can You Spare A Dime”.
