Ashley Locheed & Chris Rottmayer – So in Love

So in Love (Timuca Arts Foundation – 06) finds vocalist ASHLEY LOCHEED accompanied by a trio led by pianist CHRIS ROTTMAYER with Chuck Archard on electric bass and Keith Wilson on drums.  The program comprises eleven standards and pop tunes arranged by Rottmayer and Archard, and includes “’Round Midnight,” “I Love Paris,” “Something So Right,” “Sailing,” “La Vie en Rise” and “So in Love.”  Locheed has a smooth voice and an understated approach to lyrics.  Rottmayer fully understands the art of accompaniment.  He provides gentle support that enhances Locheed’s singing.  This is a perfect album for those quiet times when you want some attractive music that will be enjoyable but not get in the way.  (amazon.com)
