VERVE, 2000, CD
Instrument: FEMALE VOCAL
Jazz Ruler Type: Ballads, Blues
O’s Notes: Abbey continues her renaissance that started a decade ago focused on dramatic love songs and ballads. The ten tracks are backed with strong music, mainly a trio with Joe Lovano whispering sax on six songs. There are also guest appearances from Jerry Gonzales (t), Jennifer Vincent (cello) and Kendra Shank (g). It’s more of what she is famous for.
