Don't Explain

The new release from Cynthia Utterbach is a smash! This record sounds so fresh and new with the arrangement I didn't know it was a Billie Holiday song when I first heard it. The melodic harmonies of the 1940's track are so sensuous and inviting, and the violinist Alex Sergueenko and Cynthia do such a brilliant job of bringing the right mood to the track as with all the other musicians.  Thou this ensemble may not be extremely recognizable to jazz buffs each one of these musicians has been playing at a professional level for their entire career, and at esteemed organizations around the world.
