Singer Cat Conner has a very soothing delivery that makes listening a joy. Her latest effort,  Cat House is a nice selection of mostly off-the-beaten-path tunes from the likes of Jerome Kern and Dorothy Fields, Peggy Lee, Alan Broadbent and Dave Frishberg, Meredith d’Ambrosio and Michael Dees.Connor also contributes a composition to the mix. The songs here are well constructed with great musicianship from a lineup, which includes among its talented ranks, Tom Ranier on piano, John Chiodini on guitar, Chuck Berghofer on bass, Ron Stout on trumpet, Dick Nash on trombone and Joe LaBarbarera on drums. There’s a great chemistry and trust between the band and vocalist that translates into a really well done recording.
