O’s Notes: Barbara sings eleven warm ballads. Her voice is deep and warm and she soars on many tunes. “One More Day” is one of a few spiritual tunes that resonated with us. We also liked the bossa nova beats of “Overtaken”, her arrangement of “Ribbon In The Sky” and “Your Smile” featuring Dave Valentin (flute). The title track had a cool swing but our favorite is “Tryin’ Times” including nice work on guitar from Rodney Jones.
