Tiffany Austin has a great voice, and on a collection of classics she is backed by a band that matches her technical abilities note for note. She gives “Stardust” a smokey, after-hours intimacy that allows us to marvel at her phrasing, control and resonance. Yes, the recording is a bit too languid, but its length allows her sax player to blow a deep, sensual solo. “Baltimore Oriole” ups the energy––the band really leans into it––and Austin sounds by turns sassy and sweet. The singer’s version of “I Walk The Line” trades Johnny Cash’s burlap tone for one that is thoroughly upbeat, uptown and joyful. Austin has the skills to take on just about any song, and she’s fearless when it comes to interpretation.
