Sherri Roberts CD Reviews
Anybody's Spring CD cover Sherri Roberts
Anybody's Spring
Blue House Recordings /
Pacific Coast Jazz 2017
catalogue # PJ72003

Vocalist Sherri Roberts tries to get our minds off the present snow and prepare us for the freshness of spring on her most recent album that features songs of the primavera. She brings together a like minded bi-coastal team of David Udolf/p, Harvie S/b, Akira Tana/dr and Sheryl Bailey/g to swing into spring themes and titles that reflect various moods of the season.

Her warm and relaxed voice fits well into the lazy swinging groove of “It’s Anybody’s Spring” with rich soloing by Bailey, while piano and bass chime to a flowing waltz as Roberts glistens on “Spring Sprang Sprung.” Guitar and bass sound like droplets of dew as Roberts eases into “They Say It’s Spring,” while a hip bass intro leads the way for her breathy voice into a bopping “Joy Spring.” Tana is crisp as Romaine lettuce while setting the opening for Roberts to glide into a nimble “Lady Bird” whereas the more reflective part of the season is saved for last on a soft duet with Udolf during a late night and early morning low clouds read of “Spring Isn’t Everything.” An excellent weather report!
