Review: creative duo on vocal and trumpet create a distinct sound fusing contemporary jazz with soul, R&B, & gospel influences, enhanced by a variety of crack supporting musicians that they pull in as needed. April uses her voice as a separate instrument, jamming through song and scat with the other players. Half the songs are originals.
