Little Tootsie, 2013, CD
Instrument: Female Vocals
Jazz Ruler Type: Ballads, Blues
O’s Notes: Jazz vocalist Kathy Kosins takes on eleven contemporary ballads for The Space Between. Tamir Hendelman (p), Robert Hurst (b) and Eric Harland (d, perc) provide string support with Larry Koonse (g) appearing on two selections. There is a chill mix of “Night Bird” that will delight the club set while the majority of the music is jazzy blues. Among the best are “Song For my Father” and “You Fascinate Me So”. Kathy stays within a sweet range that imparts enough style and emotion to make these tunes sizzle.
