Despite her obvious talents as a highly expressive and chance-taking jazz vocalist, Cathy Segal-Garcia's first two recordings were made for obscure labels. This particular CD, which was released by the Japanese Koyo Sounds label, features Segal-Garcia with pianist Phillip Jones, bassist Marc Johnson, and drummer Peter Erskine. Highlights include the singer's lyrics to "Mr. Hall" and Chick Corea's "Bud Powell," along with her renditions of "Some Other Time," "September in the Rain," and "A Sleeping Bee."
