The recording includes a live performance and that gives it added zip – that sound, and feeling, of being present with the ensemble. That ensemble is as follows:
Jenny Davis – vocals, compositions, Jovino Santos Neto – piano, Chuck Deardorf – bass, Jeff Busch – drums, Kurt Festinger – tenor saxophone, Dimitri Matheny – flugelhorn, Mark Taylor – alto saxophone, Heather Bentley – viola/violin, David Lange – accordion, The Yeoman Warders Sax Quartet (Kate Olsen – soprano, Mark Taylor – alto, Cynthia Mullis – tenor, Jim Dejoie – baritone) with added vocals by Lorrie Ruiz and Vanessa Littrell.
The songs – Aceptar, And What If I Don’t, Come With Me, Rearranged, Yeoman Warders, Invitation, Saying Yes, Calling You, Answer the Call, Gemini Tango, Wise Up, and the live track of Rearranged.
A breath of fresh air and excellent performances – this recording is very fine.
