O’s Notes: Stephanie sings a wonderful set in front of the swinging Harris Simon Trio. They shine across all fifteen songs with excellent inflection and passion from Nakasian. We enjoyed the interactions on “I Concentrate on You” and “Nica’s Dream” with cool scatting and solos by Simon (p) and drummer Billy Williams. Bass duty is handled by Chris Brydge who walks (runs) his bass in concert with Stephanie’s scatting on “The End of a Love Affair”. These are just a few of the highlights in a rousing performance.
