Sherri Roberts: Twilight World

Sherri Roberts is nostalgically nonchalant on her debut album, singing beautiful feel-good songs with style and verve. Her soft, clear voice lends itself well to Johnny Mercer’s “I Remember You” and “Emily,” but she also swings hard on charts like “Suddenly It’s Spring” and “Take a Chance on Spring.” The septet backing her has Mark Soskin on piano, Keith Underwood on flutes, with the addition of cello and bass clarinet to the guitar-fueled rhythm section.
