Notes & Reviews:

Acclaimed lyric soprano Patrice Michaels, "a formidable interpretative talent" (The New Yorker), conceived and headlines this inventive, wide-ranging two-disc, 26 song project where classical music and jazz find common ground. A vocalist of uncommon intellect and sophisticated wit, Michaels has assembled a singular collection of songs, including one she composed, which give Ms. Michaels and her stellar instrumental collaborators room to gently improvise and swing the music.

American Record Guide, January/February 2015
The Bauer songs celebrate the ordinary playfully: a security guard, the neighborhood cats, Michaels's husband working in the basement, and the sounds of the Chicago El. I loved the Lindberg songs; Michaels's scatting is pretty great, and the songs fit the theme of the album nicely. Of the Israels pieces, the most interesting for me was the arrangement of 'Balm in Gilead'. The Beeuwsaert and Jobim arrangements (the former by Michaels) are a nice end to this eclectic program. Notes, texts, and translations.
