Review: Superstein’s latest album showcases her skills as a songwriter and arranger as well as her sensuous voice. Most of the compositions, in English, French and Hebrew, are her own. Some of the songs explore the difficulty of connecting with one another in romantic relationships. Her band is both muscular & sharp.
