NANCY HARMS: In the Indigo
self-released, 2009

VOCAL JAZZ – Fine singer out of Minneapolis brings an appealing depth of tone, a distinctive element of achy sultriness (think Julie London or maybe Holly Cole) and some really nice phrasing. She does a couple of poppish crossover tracks that I could personally do without, but boy does she sound great on the straight jazz numbers...

* * * * | Fo’s Picks: 1, 3, 4, 6, 9, 10

1. 4:21 – late night melancholy: Harms wraps up the melody; trumpet shines
2. 2:52 – upbeat and swinging, trumpet & piano take turns in the spotlight
3. 3:54 – slinky groove, a great example of her style; gets flashy in the middle
4. 2:48 – pretty original tune, delicate sing-song melody, sort of a 1970s feel
5. 4:18 – 1960s Broadway tune, lightly swinging; nice piano break
6. 5:03 – oooh… sweet melancholy ballad; voice nestles in a bass/piano pillow
7. 2:59 – singer/songwriter feel, mopey with guitar & organ
8. 3:36 – lightly spinning crossover-jazz track; trumpet has a bunch to do
9. 4:41 – shimmering blue ballad: sweet whispery vocal, nice nightclub sound
10. 4:38 – new intro makes this standard sound modern; sexy, then swings
11. 2:53 – slow, wistful, aching… soft vocal and pretty piano
