Experienced in opera, theatre and big band music, S.F. Bay Area vocalist Molly Mahoney has developed a ridiculously impressive vocal range. Her choice of material, by Great American Songbook scribes like Henry Mancini and Cole Porter, allows her to show off her prodigeous pipes. Mahoney has Love on her mind as all three songs she submitted to us dwell upon that topic. “All of You” is a gushing, jazzy love tribute where her voice is mostly pure light, though she sometimes over-sings. The uber-romantic “Moment to Moment” tempers the loveliness of love with an underlying bit of sadness, thanks to some beautiful solo piano work.  Those keyboard flourishes continue on “Two For The Road” with a great solo passage.
