Product Description

Review

"...a sensibility that is at times rock-oriented, at times R&B-based, and yet always rooted to the melody by the sexy, soaring vocal chords that are Johnson's instrument" -- Winnipeg Sun

"...it is a lovely voice, and the arrangements give room for her to stretch it, and show off some beautiful playing by Downes and Craig." -- Eye Music

"Her distinctive voice keeps you going back for more." -- Winnipeg Free Press

"Johnson's warm, liquid voice lovingly embraces each song." -- The Toronto Sun

"The album smoulders from start to finish, particularly on standout tracks... Johnson's voice is by turns electrifying and heartbreaking." -- The Leader Post

What was she thinking? Former Alta Moda and Infidels singer Molly Johnson opens her second solo album with "Summertime," the Gershwin standard covered so much it's practically a cliché. Johnson's version adds little to the canon except a cumbersome hip-hop beat. Moreover, it gives almost no indication of the pleasures to come--including the unobtrusive but complementary instrumentals that accompany the Torontonian's fine, smoky voice on subtly catchy tunes. Far better are the playful nightclub vibe on Marc Jordan's "I Must Have Left My Heart," the sweet melody of "He's Got My Heart" (written by Johnson's pianist Andrew Craig), the jumpy swing of "Red Cardinal," and the hazy, lazy mood of "Sleep in Late." Add an ambitious duet with Craig that combines the 1970 Five Stairsteps soul hit "Ooh Child" with Bob Marley's "Redemption Song" to end the disc, and "Summertime" seems even more like the result of sunstroke. --Shawn Conner
