O’s Notes: Kelley has a soft warm voice that she takes through ten ballads, mostly popular standards that help us resurface warm memories. She sings in front of a trio with John Hansen (p), Michael Glynn (b) and Kendrick Scott (d). Guest artist Jay Thomas (sax, t) provides accents on three selections notably “Let’s Do It”. We also enjoyed “Goodbye To Love” and “Lullaby of Birdland”, both fresh retakes with pizzaz. This is indeed Something Good.
