O’s Notes: Marty Elkins fell in love with jazz while in college and has risen to be an exceptional, under the radar, jazz vocalist with warm tone and polished voicings. She teams up with veteran bassist Mike Richmond for ‘Tis Autumn, a collection of ten classics that glimmer in these renditions. Richmond plays two seasoned instruments, a 170-year-old Tyrolean bass and a 120-year-old Czechoslovakian cello with fine precision. Mike’s bass work and arrangements are a perfect match for Elkins vocals leading to a delightfully, well-recorded session.
