There are only two songs on this ep by vocalist Nancy Kelly, but they leave you with a taste for more. Her two songs have her in the hip shadows of John DiMartino/p-key, d Howard/b Freddie Hendrix/tp, Harry Allen/ts, Carmen Intorre Jr/dr-perc, Wesley Amorim/g and Jimmy Johns/vib. Her “Jazz Woman” has a bohemian soul feel, accentuated by Hendrix’s muted noir trumpet as Kelly coos out the lyrics. “Move Over” saunters with Allen’s breathy tenor sax and Johns’ vibes adding long shadows to Kelly’s alluring lyrics. By saying less, she makes you lean in.
