Panton here maintains the very high standards of her previous albums. It's a wonderful 'amalgam' of jazz and
bossa nova, and it's cool to hear some of the songs in French too. Without resorting to overstated vocal gymnastics,
she still impresses with phrasing and attention to lyric, and shows how effective just having a pretty
voice can be. Fine accompaniment as always from her trio, and some nice subtle percussion, cello, flute added at times too.
It may be light in style, but very sophisticated and sensitive. Parallels to Stacey Kent and Joannie Sommers's great
'Softly, the Brazilian Sound': but Panton (and the musicians) create here an album of real, distinct and rare quality.
