Kelley Johnson: Make Someone Happy

Kelley Johnson sings with confidence, combining excellent phrasing with an unpretentious delivery. She sings and swings on 13 tracks that include vocal gems such as “Solitude,” “September in the Rain” and “Falling in Love With Love,” “So Many Stars” and the title chart. Fred Hersch and John Hansen share piano duties, with Larry Grenadier on bass, Lewis Nash on drums, and horns added on four tracks.
