Linda Ciofalo: Take the High Road
And on it goes. Ciofalo's voice turns tender for ballads, soulful for the blues, and sassy for almost everything. Despite all the shifting, she maintains good phrasing, has reasonable range, and avoids intonation problems. The musicians brought into the studio to work with her provide admirable support for the singer and there are some interesting arrangements. At the same time, there's nothing earth shattering or ground breaking about this album. There are many albums on the market these days competing with this one. A burden Take the High Road must carry is that it offers a scant 38 minutes of music. Visit Ms Ciofalo's home page at www.jazzsingers.com/lindaciofalo.
