Out of Sight, 2010, CD
Instrument: Female Vocals
Jazz Ruler Type: Ballads, Blues
O’s Notes: Contemporary pop vocalist Sylvia Bennett teams up with long time collaborator and producer Hal S. Batt (g). They put a different spin on a dozen American classics. They use Latin rhythms, bossa nova beats and light boleros instead of the traditional swing. The Vienna Strings are lush and maintain the romantic feeling on songs like “The Shadow of Your Smile” and “The Very Thought of You”. It is yet another slant on familiar classics.
