Album Review: Kim Nazarian - "Some Morning" (8/10)

An inspiring, eclectically jazzy mix of
 standards and originals, this long-awaited 
debut from one of the founding members of
the Grammy-winning vocal ensemble, New
York Voices, surpasses all expectations.
 Produced by her husband, trombonist
 Jay Ashby, and featuring a spirited array of jazz greats (Gary Burton, John Pizza
relli, Paquito D’Rivera), the collection is a 
thoughtful and engaging mix of lighthearted swing tunes, ballads and world music that showcases not only Nazarian’s exquisite solo vocals and spot-on scatting abilities, but also her illuminating talents as a lyricist and arranger.

Score: 8 out of 10
