Great album!
DANIELA SCHACHTER/Purple Butterfly: Here’s a singing/jazz piano vocalist that has worked with Clayton-Hamilton Orchestra and Christian McBride. Hey, just saying. Putting art over commerce in her approach, Schachter has paid her dues and knows how to put her own spin on a tune. The kind of set a mainstream jazzbo will take to heart easily as the readings aren’t straight, reliable ones, but they aren’t ars gratia artis either. Everyone is on the same page and the results are smoking. A solid set that will easily resonate with the lightly, left leaning.
