O’s Notes: Sarah’s voice is soft and gentle with a friendly country twist that establishes her signature. She redefines ten standards; each arranged to fit her groove. The tempo is relaxed just enough to let you feel it on “Too Young for the Blues” with a nice solo from Chris Bergson (g). We also liked “Blackbirds” with solid work from Bergson, Chuck Mackinnon (t) and Brian Charette (p), the bossa nova beats of “If I Had You” and “The Right Time”.
