The arrangements on the effort are decidedly fresh and engaging.The musical backdrop is provided by the talented lineup of Mitchell Long on guitar, Peter Kuzma on piano, Leslie King on bass, Chuck Staab on drums, Pete Korpella on percussion and Anthony Bonsera on trumpet and flugelhorn. Ford vocals soar through the notes and leaves you wanting to hear more at the end of this 5-song EP, which is a great thing. Do check her out.
