Singer Judy Wexler and her mesmerizing voice take on the tunes by some great composers on her latest recording. Under A Painted Sky is a foray through the songbooks of Benny Golson, Leonard Feather, Gary McFarland, Carmen McRae and Abbey Lincoln among others.The songs are wonderfully arranged by Alan Pasqua who plays piano on the project and worked with Wexler on her two previous efforts. The album is also graced by the talents of Bob Mintzer and and Bob Sheppard on tenor and soprano saxes, respectively. Alex Acuna is featured on percussion, Darek Oles on bass Steve Hass on drums, Larry Koonse on guitar and Walter Fowler on trumpet and flugelhorn. Another fantastic outing for Wexler that is worth hearing.
