Jay Klum: Home Cooking (2003)

Jay Klum: Home Cooking

Home Cooking is a simple pleasure. After having listened to labelmate Doug Lawrence’s Streetwise, I was half expecting a little funky tome replete with organ, guitar and tenor—all that would go well with a title like Home Cooking. Instead, the home cooking here is that kind of food that is warm and familiar—comfortable. I was also expecting Jay Klum to be a man and was pleasantly surprised to learn otherwise. Ms. Klum has a potent yet pretty voice that can wrap around music as different as the opening "I Wish You Love" and "Lullaby of Birdland." Her piano playing is utilitarian, durable and attractive, not unlike that of Tadd Dameron. Husband and bassist Ted Klum provides a solid foundation for Ms. Klum to hover over as she spins ballad after ballad. "Alone Together," "Softly, As In A Morning Sunrise," "Spring is Here," and "I’ll Remember April" show up for her approval and direction. "You Don’t Know What Love Is" appears as two lengthy takes, fully explored and presented by the band. Home Cooking is an exciting label debut for the very talented Jay Klum. More, please!
