The band is augmented by the talents of John Rack on guitar, Bill Noble on and Steve Mann on alto and tenor saxophones, Andrea Lindborg and Tony Farrell on trumpets, Sammy K on drums and percussion and Al Person on percussion. Vocalist Laura Dickinson provides wonderful vocals to a couple of tracks as well. The set is comprised of 4 of Michelle’s excellent original tunes and nicely covered works by Antonio Carlos Jobim, Burt Bacharach, Carl Perkins, Henry Mancini and Gato Barieri. It’s one party of an album that is thoroughly enjoyable recording.
