Vernelle is one of those honest singers, she has the talent and use it without restraint. She sings as if it is as easy as breathing. This CD is made up of familiar standards of Jazz and R&B and she handles them all with the ease of a professional.
The accompanying musicians are seasoned and give this offering the flavor it needs to make it a collectable. It did for me.
