CD Wherehouse Review

Just when you thought you were getting more of the same thing in the field of Jazz vocal, in comes Alison Dewar with her beautiful and somewhat bright voice. Itís actually hard to believe this is her debut album with the expatriate South African songbird gliding through a seelction of jazz standards such as "Softly In A Morning Sunrise" with such conviction and intimacy.

Her arranger/pianist (Graham Harvey) laces the cuts with some hard swing and a thin stripe of modern touch. By any standard, a definite world class recording. If you havenít heard her music, jump at the opportunity. If you have, consider yourself privileged.

Xolani Nxumalo, CD Wherehouse, South Africa (April 2006)
