Track review of "Superstition"

Patty Cronheim: Days Like These Livia Devereux's Night Winds Whisper (Self Produced, 2010) sported a very jazzy "Walking After Midnight" , proving that well-written music can survive in any genre climate. Patty Cronheim proves the same on Days Like These, a disc also populated with lesser-known standards and forays outside of the typical jazz realm.

Stevie Wonder's "Superstition" is given a smooth, hard bop treatment in place of its original funk-inspired strut. Cronheim's silky low alto divines the supernatural essence of the song. Greg Wall's tenor saxophone and Clifford Adams' trombone recall the plush sound of The Jazz Messengers circa 1961, employing trombonist Curtis Fuller and tenor saxophonist Wayne Shorter. Cronheim transcends mere blues to cast this popular song in a firm "Moondance" vibe; with its walking bass and intricate horn filigree, it's clear that Cronheim has been listening to a lot of Van Morrison.

Personnel: Patty Cronheim: vocals; Aaron Weiman: piano and Rhodes; Brian Glassman: bass; Corey Rawls: drums; Greg Wall: tenor and soprano sax; Clifford Adams: trombone.

Year Released: 2011 | Record Label: Say So Records | Style: Vocal
