Grace Testani: Something’s Coming

If you like your singers bold and sassy, Grace Testani delivers on both counts. She projects enough sibilant volume to fill an amphitheater on her own arrangements of “Sweetest Sounds,” “Show Me,” “High Fly” and the title track. She decreases the energy level to deliver her own lyrics put to Kenny Barron’s “Morning Shower” and Chick Corea’s “Watching the Wind.” Pianist Jim McNeely is stellar throughout, working with changing rhythm sections that deliver swing, salsa, sambas and even a bolero.
