Passion, Intelligence, and Scat: More Deb Pasternak
Jeff Gilson | Woodstock, CT | 06/13/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Signature Sounds recording artist Deb Pasternak's album More showcases much of this rising singer-songwriter's talent, and also provides an insight into her roots. Deb's musical passion shines through in songs like More, Mary, and Pick-Axe Love Song, while the whole album lets you know that there is a fierce intellect at work behind what you're hearing. There is a heavy Joni Mitchell influence at work here, but Deb is always herself, throwing in the odd scat riff in her acoustic jazz-folk. This is one of the best CD's this reviewer has heard in ages."
Great songs, but...

"This is a very solid effort. From the reviews I read, my expectations were high. The songs are mostly excellent and when the production allows the warmth of Deb Pasternak to come through, beautiful emotive music streams out of the speakers. The couple of stray filler songs and the producer/guitarists tendancy to provide a "backing band" in the new orleans r&b traditions instead of buidling a soundstage around the lead vocal keep this album from being all that it could be."
