O’s Notes: Pianist/producer Jeremy Monteiro discovered Rani early in the decade while performing in Singapore. He was fascinated with her luscious vocals and has helped her realize her life long dream to record a vocal CD. The true benefactors are the listeners as Singam is not just a copycat singer. She has a beautiful vocal signature and great command of her delivery. Listen to the dynamics on “You Go To My Head” and “Just Squeeze Me” to appreciate the beauty of her presentation. Greg Fishman shadows Rani on sax here and on several other tracks. The program is all standards arranged by Monteiro. We enjoyed “Little Girl Blue” and “Sometime Ago”. We look forward to her continued development as a jazz vocalist.
