What a Difference a Melody Makes
The Singer and The Songwriter
Planetary, 2014 Reviewed by Trish Morgan 01-25-2015

At the intersection of gypsy jazz, folk, and blues, this album is open and clean. Rachel Garcia has a beautiful voice and Thu Tran composes perfectly for it. Sounds like Nellie McKay, She & Him, Stacey Kent. No FCCs
Best Tracks: 1, 2, 6, 9

1 The Art of Missing You 2:13 - Lovely little number; mid-tempo
2 Homebody 2:23 - Mid-tempo moving to up-tempo; fun with horns
3 Old Fashioned 3:15 - Musings on guitar lead the way, then opens into swinging uptempo ditty
4 Dry Spell 3:36 - Slow and plaintive drought blues
5 Out of the Fog 3:32 - A Pacific coast, folk-inflected, swaying song
6 Half the Week 2:56 - Uptempo, jazzy number; good piano accompaniment
7 Over the Town 2:22 - Slow, thoughtful with more a folk feel.
8 A Borrowed Room in a Borrowed House 3:07 - Syncopated folk tune that blossoms with strings
9 Pacific Coast Highway 3:00 - Swinging ode to the attractions of the open road; great horns
10 Unlove You 2:47 - Fells a little like an Hawaiian song from the early 60s.
11 Someday 2:15 - Slow and striding song
12 Summer Song 5:48 - Mid-tempo; folk-tinged simple song that moves into lush orchestration then back to simplicity
13 A Lullaby (for Malcolm) 2:55 - Quiet, evocative, gentle
