One of Canada's most celebrated jazz vocalists, Jeri Brown uses her classically trained voice to mesmerizing effect throughout this entertaining best-of, which showcases her facility with jazz with nicely phrased readings of "No Moon," "Orange Colored Sky," and "Once Upon a Summertime," and in more commercial areas with a fine-tuned, gospel-tinged version of Billy Preston's "Will It Go Round in Circles." She's given expert backing by the likes of the pianist Cyrus Chestnut and the drummer Grady Tate.
