Teri Thornton: I'll Be Easy To Find Vocalist and pianist Teri Thornton recorded a number of albums in the early 60s and then virtually disappeared from the scene. I'll Be Easy To Find finds Ms. Thornton, now 64-years-old, in fine form, her voice still strong. Thornton’s vocal interpretations display the kind of maturity and sincerity often born of hard times. The opening track, her signature Somewhere In The Night, evokes memories of Carmen and Sarah. Thornton swings gently through I Believe In You and then scats Ella-like on the classic It Ain’t Necessarily So. Few jazz artists have “covered” The Lord’s Prayer. That makes her emotive rendition, augmented by Jerome Richardson’s alto solo, a unique addition to the program. Two Thornton originals, Feels Good and Salty Mama, showcase her bluesy/funky side. With this release, I don’t expect Teri Thornton to “disappear” this time around. I'll Be Easy To Find should keep this gutsy performer in the spotlight for good. (####)
