Clairdee: Destination Moon
Mainstream Voice...Star Eyes Talent.. Clairdee and her excellent piano trio meld with one another to produce a recording of seamless swing. The upbeat numbers (“When the Lights are Low”, “Destination Moon”) delicately propel themselves, defying the natural order of things. The ballads (“Time after Time”, “East of the Sun”) are lush and velvet. “They Can’t Take That Away From Me is a revelation.
Clairdee has a wonderful alto voice that she never uses to abuse The Canon. She sings straight ahead and in doing so provides these diamonds the respect warranted without being too reverential. A super initial effort making this critic beg for more, more!
