Nancy Erickson: While Strolling Through the ParkBy
Erickson is a Seattle native who has managed to surround herself with the Origin Arts musician stable and other Northwest Coast stalwarts. She beautifully duets with bassist/vocalists Clipper Anderson on "I Just Dropped by to Say Hello," the two taking a languid beach stroll with the Feller-Ward chestnut. Pianist Darin Clendenin classes the place up with just a standard rhythm section. Top notch takes on "Perdido" (at deliberate tempo...slowly revealing the genius of Juan Tizol) and a rocking-rapid "That Old Black Magic." Erickson is smart in her song choice and arrangements. Erickson's superb "The Whippoorwill Song" and Edith Piaf's "La Vie en Rose" close is fulfilling and most satisfying offering.
