Jessica sparkles and delights!

"This is one of Jessica's first, but sounds like it was recorded at a pinnacle of development. I bought it direct from Jessica when she was hawking CDs at the end of her first of what would come to be 3 separate gigs in Victoria, B.C. (the last which resulted in a CD of its own). She was right; the group really cooks and the joy of the trio is immediate. By now, you may recognize some of her flashing embroidery, but it is delivered with such ebullient verve that it sounds fresh as can be. "Stonewall Blues" could be her theme song. On "You Do Something to Me" she jumps around octaves to present the melody in hilarious bytes,then swings it to the ground. The originals are delightful. Monkish humour abounds throughout. The only weak link might be the final "Autumn Leaves" where the parts may dazzle but the whole seems incomplete. An essential recording for any of her fans."
