Jacinta: Recycle Swing (2011)
Singer Jacinta's ethereal baritone is the perfect vessel for these iconic songs, accurately conveying the compositions' message and tone whilst never failing to bring something new to the table. Adding Lorenzo Petrocca's guitar to a quintessential jazz trio was a clever move; while it merges with the other instruments in a fitting way, it most definitely adds a fresh touch that is all-pervasive throughout the entire album.
Jacinta is, undeniably, in good company. Accompanied by a panoply of extraordinary musicians including eminent drummer Marcel Gustke, Recycle Swing by and large grasps the Broadway feel. There's no need for colossal arrangements or changes; the music speaks for itself in its simplicity and brilliance, all-embracing and articulate, never turned into something it was not before while remaining as contemporary as ever.
