Grammy-nominee Kate McGarry writes of Julie's new CD:
Julie Kelly gives us a rich harvest of songs and stories a vocalist with a reputation for refined tastes in tunes, band mates and arrangements, It's a bumper crop of juicy, freshly picked tunes worth waiting for; and worthy of joining the seven other smart and swinging recordings Kelly has released during her lauded career as a jazz vocalist, lyricist and educator. And while this project does feature some obscure gems from the Great American Songbook, it also contains original songs and lyrics from Julie's own expanding portfolio, even as she spotlights new material from jazz's next generation of fine composers and lyricists.
"Fresh, beautifully phrased vocals..." - Marc Myers
