Album Notes
Alternately nostalgic and fresh, each track on Did It Anyway is a story told with Younkin's ethereal voice and breezy trumpet improvisations. Reminiscent of jazz trumpeters Chris Botti and Chet Baker, Younkin's solos on "When I Fall in Love" and "Polka Dots and Moonbeams" bring her distinctly feminine touch to the instrumental choruses. When she steps out as a song writer on "Tango for One" and "Woman in Gold," however, Younkin places the instrumental solos in the hands of pianist Paul Tardif and guitarist Chris Cortez to tell a story that is decidedly contemporary in both style and sentiment.

Younkin's arrangements and compositions groove with an understated sophistication that places them somewhere beyond straight-ahead jazz, and her inclination to insert new stories into nostalgic favorites like "House of the Rising Sun" opens new doorways for interpretation. "April Rain" marks a departure from the jazz flavoring of the album. A collaboration between Younkin and pianist Brian Gatchell, it is a simple story of love and regret told with the alarming honesty of a girl who, despite being a jazz trumpet player, is still a singer-songwriter at heart.
