|Greta Panettieri, 'Greta's Bakery'|
The work features a duet with Greta and Curtis King Jr a long time friend of Greta's, who sings with
Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band, on the first cut of the album, 'Lover'. A great tune that speaks of lovers who express "long time, no see"...to a beautiful melody that lingers with you.
Another contributor to the work is Los Angeles producer, and musician, Larry Willians. Williams aided in the production and has an amazing sax solo on 'My Angel', a tune that mixes him with Greta in a jazz, soul tune made from love!
Greta doesn't imitate the tune, she inhabits it. What a wonderful showcase this arrangement is for her!
Her velvet smooth tone, with the phrasing that sets Greta apart from most singers, and this marvelous interpretation, has that melody stuck in my head, great number!
here is a video of:: 'I Just Can't Stop Loving You'
Greta personalizes every tune she sings, she is loved by a pop audience as well as her huge jazz following. This album will please them both. A wonderful potpourri of original tunes available November 7th, 2013.
