Subject: CD Review


Just ran across a nice jazz CD that may be of interest: Betty O'Hara "A
Woman's Intuition" (1997 Sea Breeze Jazz, SB-3025).  BO'H alternates
between singing (ballad style, in a nice low alto voice) and playing a
variety of brass in a quintet with piano, guitar, bass and drums.  On this
disc she uses trumpet, cornet, flugelhorn, bass trumpet, valve trombone,
and double-bell euphonium.

The Tracks (and instruments used in the solos):

  1.      Someone to Watch Over Me (fh, vt)
  2.      Skylark (bt, tp)
  3.      Out Of This World (fl, dbe)
  4.      It's Wonderful (tp, vt)
  5.      More Than You Know (tp)
  6.      Stockholm Sweetnin'/You Leave Me Breathless (fh, vt, tp)
  7.      A Woman's Intuition (vt)
  8.      All Too Soon (bt)
  9.      It's Easy to Remember (fh)
  10.      Mood Indigo (ct, dbe, brass choir with all horns)
  11.      But Not For Me (dbe)
  12.      One For My Baby (dbe)

 - A lot of old classics there!  A nice CD.
