At the End of the Day by Rosana Eckert

Rosana Eckert is a jazz singer and educator from Texas. At the End of the Day finds her backed by seven other Lone Star jazzmen, the best known of which is probably bassist John Adams. The CD is a solid mix of originals and standards by such songwriters as Johnny Mercer, Dave Frishberg and Jobim.

Rosana Eckert's voice is attractive but unspectacular; her technique, on the other hand, is impeccable. She handles ballads with grace, sings comfortably in Portuguese on "Ela E Carioca," and delivers "One Mint Julep" with appropriate sass. Her own originals are nice, too. Some swing, like as the opening "I Know I've Seen This Thing Before," while others like "For Elizabeth" are tender.

Rosana Eckert sings in a way that maximizes her vocal gift. The band behind her matches her competence with steady playing of their own. This is a solid album in every facet.
