Peel Me a Grape by Barbara Levy Daniels

Barbara Levy Daniels returned to music after an absence of almost 40 years. The New York based vocalist sent along a copy of her second CD, Peel Me a Grape. Accompanied by a swinging quartet, the former "pop" singer launches into a nice bunch of jazz standards. Influenced by Ella Fitzgerald and Mel Torme, Barbara Levy Daniels swings gently like Chris Connors and Jeri Southern.

Her version of My Foolish Heart exhibits her highly personal style and she is accompanied solely by Nick Mancini on vibes. William Galison’s appearance as a guest is an asset to several tunes, especially One Note Samba.

Barbara Levy Daniels is a singer to watch. Drop by her website and listen to samples.
