Smooth. Reeeeeaaaal smooth.
Jazz vocalist Sherri Roberts' vocal style reminds me in many ways of Doris Day, whom I felt has never received the attention she deserved for her recorded work.
This is the second full-length that Ms. Roberts has recorded with bassist Harvie Swartz and pianist Mark Soskin. This collection of tunes has a nice mature feel to it, featuring covers of composers like Henry Mancini, Rogers and Hart, Cole Porter, and Dave Brubeck.
Sherri's deep vocal style is dreamy indeed, and she has an amazing vibratto that sounds as slick as silk. Looking for dinner music that'll put that special guest in the exact frame of mind you want them in? Check out the appropriately titled Dreamsville. This is some SEXY stuff...
