Suzanne Pittson: Resolution: A Remembrance of John Coltrane

Inspired by Coltrane’s Love Supreme album, Frisco-based vocalist Suzanne Pittson boldly soars and scats through 11 tunes (three by Coltrane) with a quartet featuring pianist Jeff Pittson. While Suzanne shows vocal agility interpreting challenging uptempo material, her lean timbre seems not as suitable for ballads, evident in her thin-voiced, strained performance of “My One and Only Love.” Still, this followup to her 1996 debut demonstrates she’s a true musician, an insider who nimbly navigates chord changes.
