This enchanting CD, by LA-based singer Sony Holland, offers delightful moments that combine elegance, delicacy, sensitivity & musical joy, in reverence to music's subtler values. The lovely intertwining of lines, tempos and motifs abounds throughout the beautifully & inventively arranged 13 track-program, a perfect blend of standards (from the opener My Foolish Heart to the finale with the best vocal version of My Romance since Carly Simon's recording with Eddie Gomez & Steve Gadd 20 years ago) and originals by Sony's hitmaker (and multi-talented) husband Jerry Holland -- my personal favorite being Little Tune, that sounds sooooo pretty!...
A vocal experience not to be missed… with smooth delivery; lyrical pleasure and heartfelt emotion. Pete Fallico, DJ KCSM San Francisco
