CD Review: Judith - The Second time Around

Judith Lorick (vocal); Eric Reed (piano); Jeremy Pelt (trumpet); McClenty Hunter (drums); Kiyoshi Kitagawa (bass); Chris Lewis (tenor).
(Review by Lance).
Another album that's as good as any in the current rush of jazz vocal albums, mainly female, that are flooding the market like cut-price booze in a supermarket.
Lorick has a distinctive sound - she's not blatantly cloning anyone - the songs are sound and the band is ace. But, like I said in a previous review (Mike Bogle Trio), it's difficult to be over enthusiastic when the distant divas are still available on disc or download and, even if they weren't, there are so many great singers vying to get their vocal chords in front of the pack that it's difficult to single one out.
Lorick is a front-runner,  nice sound, full of emotion and no pointless scatting. Well worth checking out if you haven't been brought up listening to your grandparents' favourites.
Great songs and a band to die for - Pelt's trumpet playing's the tops.
