Christine Hitt
You'd Be So Nice to Come Home To
MaxJazz

On You'd Be So Nice to Come Home To, Hitt is heard on piano and vocals and is backed by Tom Kennedy, bass; Jeff Hamilton, drum; Todd Strait, drum; Scott Alberici, clarinet; Rick Haydon, guitar; and Ray Kennedy, piano. The recording explores 15 compositions (mostly standards) and excellent musicianship is displayed throughout. Hitt is at the top of her form on Irving Berlin's "What'll I Do," and Will Hudson's "Moonglow." Duke Ellington's "In a Mellowtone" finds Alberici's swinging obbligatos behind Hitt's swinging lyricism.
