Roseanna Vitro and The Music of Randy Newman (Motema Music) by Roseanna Vitro

Editor's Comments
Wow. Now that's my kind of vocal jazz. No vocal theatrics or forced drama, just respectfully embracing the melody and making the song her own. Roseanna takes ownership of this song with a seemingly effortless performance, one that I find reminiscent of early Herbie Hancock, in that way that the subtlety of the moment yields a powerful emotional reaction.

"Sail Away" is one of Randy Newman's most familiar compositions. It features Randy's sharp political satire by playing the roll of a slave herder telling Africans how great it will be when they get to America.
