Judy Roberts: Circle of Friends

Vibrant Judy Roberts has honed her individualistic style to the point of perfection, her extraordinary versatility proven on this ninth album. She fast-forward scats “Scrapple from the Apple” and “Take Five,” then delicately plumbs the essence of “Born to Be Blue” and “So Many Stars.” The 13 tracks showcase her marvelous duality, teamed with exceptional tenor saxophonist-flutist Greg Fishman and strongly backed by bassist Stewart Miller and drummer Greg Sergo.
