Sherri Roberts CD Reviews
Dreamsville CD cover Sherri Roberts
Twilight World
Brownstone 1996
BRCD 9604

Sherri Roberts is a very talented young American singer, and here she get superb backing from Mark Soskin (piano), Harvie Swartz (bass) and Jeff Hamilton (drums). There is great musical intelligence in the choice of songs and interpretation. Ms. Roberts singing is deliberate, behind the beat yet intensely swinging, with a full, rich delivery reminiscent of Helen Merrill. Highlights include "Twilight World", "Emily" and "I Remember You", all with lyrics by Johnny Mercer - the last, great, song is composer Victor Schertzinger's finest hour (maybe his only hour). An outstanding debut album, unusual and distinctive.
