O’s Notes: Vanessa Rubin is a polished jazz vocalist and storyteller, a perfect artist to interpret the works of lyricist and composer Tadd Dameron. Tadd was a prominent musician in 1940s -’50s jazz serving up tunes and coaching/advising Miles, Eckstine, Vaughn, Dizzy and countless others. Vanessa invites listeners into the lyrics to hear and feel the stories. The accompaniment is strong anchored by a solid rhythm section including pianist John Cowherd, bassist Kenny Davis and Carl Allen on drums. Five brass soloists add spice to the mix notably Clifton Anderson (tb) and Eddie Allen (t) as on “If You Could See Me Now”. We also enjoyed “On A Misty Night”, “Reveries Do Come True”, “Kitchener Across The Hall” and “Next Time Around”.
