This is a breakthrough CD for this marvelous performer. Terrific choice of music, great backup musicians with superb, inspired guests Kenny Barron and Stefan Harris, along with original material that is quite beautiful and meaningful. Melissa's and Nina D'Alessandro's lyrics to Mr. Barron's "Twilight Song", as he said himself, "Bring a tear to a glass eye."
Ms. Walker's first two CD's are also wonderful, but here she hits her stride in gorgeous, lush Leonard Bernstein music and an uptempo rendition of "Old Fashioned Walk." The CD communicates much more closely what her live performances are like (go hear her and enjoy) and her intelligence and musicianship come through most clearly.
Clarence Penn, besides doing some lynchpin drumming in a Philly Joe Jones restraint, helps the overall production through his music directorship and arranging.
Get the CD, enjoy it, and tell your friends.

I had the privilege of hearing Melissa live in London for this CD release. I actually bought "I Saw the Sky" with the intention of giving it to a friend that's a big Billie Holiday fan. But I listened to it on the flight back from London and now you couldn't pry it away from me. The album is a good mix of old standards like "I Get Along Without You Very Well" and great new tunes like the title track. In addition to some great vocal work, Melissa does some of the best scat work I've ever heard. And if that isn't enough, wait to you hear Shedrick Mitchell's piano work. The man is magic.
I don't have a lot of albums I like everything on. This is one of them.

Je connais Pratiquement toutes les chanteuses de jazz actuelles, elles ont toutes des hauts et des bas: Melissa elle non, elle N'a Que des Haut et je n'hésite pas a dire que Mélissa Walquer est la plus grandes de toutes actuellement - Phrase impeccable, parfaitement maitrisé médium; chaude voix - Bref UNE GRANDE Parmi les plus grandes - Christian (France)
