Jody Sandhaus is an evocative vocalist whose sultry after-hours delivery meshes perfectly with such exquisitely excruciating torch tales as "Not in Love." On medium paced gambols like "From This Moment On," she flirts with breezy aplomb. Clearly, Sandhaus is a singer who's also a musician. She phrases like a horn and swings with uptown elan. Her spartan way with a melody and crisp diction also merit praise. Abetted by the sublime Pete Malinverni on piano and the equally-sensitive Rufus Reid on bass and Leroy Williams on drums, Sandhaus waxes with an understated joie de vivre that wears well.
