Review: Amazing solo jazz piano! Remarkable in its scope and vivid in its illustration, this disc once again personifies the brilliantly gifted pianist's extraordinary skill set. Feeling and caressing every note empowers her to soar above the clouds and delicately shower her beauty upon us like heavenly drops of rain.
