Sunny Sumter: Getting To Know You

Not only does singer Sunny Sumter unveil her sweetly passionate, polished vocal chops, but on this maiden voyage she astutely gives lots of leeway to her splendid sideteam-pianist George Colligan, drummer Richie Goods, drummer Ali Jackson, percussionist Sam Turner and guest soloist Steve Wilson, saxophones and alto flute. Tastefully reinventing a mixture of ten standards and originals, Sumter displays poise and panache-a-plenty, suggesting that we’ll be knowing her awhile.
