Review: On "Rendering", Gray returns with another dazzling set of reimagined standards and a few originals. She has an excellent turn of phrase and can express herself vocally through several octaves, often jamming with vocally with the musicians. The second disc is her first release, "Standards in Gray". An interesting contrast.
