Anna Wilson Jazzbird/ Songbird Transfer 2014

 
Good...Not great.

Anna Wilson is a lyrical stylist that can and had risen to the top of the pack quickly...Problem is she never really gets out of the starting gate. Vocally....pristine . Song selection can and is often a killer as two particular standout tracks include the Fleetwood Mac cover " Songbird" and Gershwins's " Jazzy Little Bird." The arrangements are where the release begins to slowly fall apart but not from the lyrical style that is Anna Wilson.
 
Overall there is not much here to rave about...better than average however a jazz infused pop release to be kind....
 4 Stars.
