O’s Notes: Vocalist Barbara Balzan teams up with Daniel Pezzotti (cello), Marco Dreifuss (p) and Attilio Zanchi (b). The marriage of voice with instruments is good. The mood is subdued and her voice resonates with passion whether she’s singing the lyrics or scatting in and around the notes as on “II Lungo Addio” and combining both on “Tango Carina”. Her approach is unique and noteworthy in the sea of jazz vocalists.
