O’s Notes: Jamie Davis is a balladeer who established himself in the Bay area before gaining global fame as a jazz singer. Vibe Over Perfection is an excellent collection of tunes performed by Davis with a first rate orchestra conducted by Shelly Berg. The band is large, tight and makes beautiful music. Jamie is swinging on “Pennies From Heaven” and graces us with his warm baritone on “The Look Of Love”. The words and music are well matched and easy to appreciate. Jamie’s range, tone and pitch are always spot on making this really enjoyable. We also liked the new arrangements of “Hello” and “Round Midnight”.
