Her other discs are also great but once you've listened to the first three cuts on "That's For Me", you'll be hooked for good and become an Arioli addict!
After listening a number of times to each cut I can say what we have here is a combination of poor song choice and lack lustre performances.Also for the first time saxes and violins have been added into the mix and I found this too intrusive and in this bands' case totally unnecessary.
The number "Hot Head" is a perfect example of a terrible mish mash of saxes,guitars,bass and violin,the most convoluted one I have ever heard in their repetoire.
Jordan Officers' splendid guitar work,which I would describe as a cross between Eddie lang and Django Reinhardt,turns in a lifeless performance with "Victor Stomp".
"Tess'Torch Song" is a song totally not suited in style or substance for a singer like Susie,she is totally out of her league here and hopefully will shy away from such attempts in the future.
"Mother Earth"is an old Memphis Slim original that Susie and company just seem to bog themselves down in.Its'pace and the intrusive sax accompaniment just push this tune into the"swamp of no return".And thankfully so.
There are a few bright moments on this CD such as "The Way you look Tonight".A Fred Astaire standard that even though doesn't come near the perfection Astaire acheived back in /36,they still manage to put their own original and unique stamp on with this up tempo version that really flies, backed well by Jordan.
"It's all your Fault" and "It's a Good day" are nice little numbers and Jordans'guitar,on the latter, manages to take what would normally be the orchestras' background riffs and propels the tune along just right.
The rest of the numbers in this set are quite mediocre.Read more ›
