CD Review: Rebecca Kilgore - Moonshadow Dance


A new album from Rebecca Kilgore means all bets are off - sorry gals! Moonshadow Dance sees Kilgore move her game up a notch. Unlike previous albums where Oregon's Hall of Famer laid down definitive versions of the Gasbook, here, Ms. Kilgore introduces us to the relatively unfamiliar works of Ellen Vanderslice, Mike Horsfall and, wait for it, Rebecca Kilgore. Yes, Becky chips in with a few of her own. Our gal can compose and lyric-write as well as singing just about any other jazz chirper off the planet!
The songs are fantastic - The Gasbook Volume 2! 
Kilgore is in good voice, Horsfall gives out good vibes, the arrangements are perfectly tailored to Becky's voice - what's not to like?
It may be only April 4 but it's odds on this being my record of the month - if not my vocal record of the year.
Rebecca Kilgore, I, and everybody else who's heard you sing, loves you madly!
Available now on Cherry Pie Music.
