O’s Notes: Arlene takes a minimalist effort here singing with accompaniment from pianist Mark Eisenman. They combine to produce a full sound that is satisfying. Smith takes her time with these classics imprinting her signature of each song. It sounds like two friends getting together to play some of their favorites and that exactly what happens here. The absence of studio//producer pressures and remixes allows Arlene and Mark to have an enjoyable experience, one that can spill over to listeners.
