ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Taken from a review in the Rock River Times by Matt Spinello (Sept. 18, 2002):

"...The CD's twelve cuts include two original compositions by Ms. Beach, "My Song Is You" and "By The Firelight", each identifiably blessed by the Jodi Beach touch. An unusual duplication on the same CD includes "My Funny Valentine" in two different versions, one with a completely intricate introduction and back-up by bassist Jim McDowell and drummer Thom Fishe. The second offering links the warmly accurate mood guitar work of McDowell with a matching vocal treatment by Jodi. When you have heard both version of this fine standard tune, you realize why both were included on the same CD. The arrangements speak loudly for themselves.

The song "Dindi" brings an interesting Latin flavor to the disc's uniquely planned series of compositions, with Jodi pouring herself into the vocal with her own recognizable voicing from within. And while taking chances most groups wouldn't consider tackling in a jazz vein, recorded for all time, Jodi and her Beach boys plow right through additional standards, presenting them with a confidence that might lead the unknowing to assume they had composed a number of them, themselves. Included on this extremely well-done album are Dizzy Gillespie's "Night in Tunisia", "Java Jive,", "Peel Me A Grape", Peggy Lee's "Fever", and the CD's title song, "The Very Thought of You." And more! The disc belongs on any shelf that includes fine music with a jazz flavor."

Cool relaxing, nicely mellow and melodic
While this recording is meant to be a showcase for Jodi Beach's vocal prowess, she doesn't overpower the trio's melodic approach to the standards with superfluous vocal gymnastics as many have done before her. The smooth bass and brushwork that open Fever on track 4 set the tone for Jodi's warm approach both on the ivories and vocally. Her delivery is excellent. Let's not forget the trio as instrumentalists. The walking acoustic bass that opens Java Jive or the cool sophistication of A Night In Tunisia have moved these versions up on my list of favorites. Repeated listening has only reinforced my opinion.
Highly recommended.
