Occasionally Running doesn't quite hit a note; Fattoruso stumbles across the keys a couple of times; and voice and piano don't always mesh seamlessly. But if slick production values are absent from Time for Love, so is soporific languor. Running may not have the best voice around, but knowing how to interpret a song can count as much as a booming set of pipes. She was brave to have taken so much risk the first time out, but adventure and invention are the essence of jazz.
