This collection is great classics from the 1920s/1930s era, and the voice of Jessica Molaskey gives each song a jazzy treatment that will attract all listeners of jazz and blues vocals. Her take on "What'll I Do" is perfect and a nice way to remember this song from decades past.
Jessica Molaskey is unique as a vocalist, for she has the feel and emotion of the song she sings in a way that is easily shared and enjoyed by a jazz listening audience. This unusual collection of songs will gain her a large audience.
There are 17 songs in the collection. Some of them are: "Oh, You Beautiful Doll," "I'm Just Wild About Harry," "Ain't We Got Fun," Irving Berlin's classic "What'll I Do," "By The Beautiful Sea," "I'm Always Chasing Rainbows," "Oh, How I Hate To Get Up In The Morning," "You Made Me Love You," "When I Lost You," "I Can't Give You Anything But Love," and "Look For The Silver Lining."
Two new songs reflective of the 1920s/1930s are included in this collection, both written by John Pizzarelli and Jessica Molaskey titled "I Tried Too Hard For Too Long" and "Sail Away." The solo work in the entire collection is memorable.
PENTIMENTO is great entertainment, and Jessica Molaskey is a vocalist with class and style. This collection is a winner! Highly recommended.
