I'm enjoying this CD very much and think it worth the purchase--if you love, like I do, jazz vocalists. The voice, her handling of the materials, the tunes--it's an unusual, pretty package to listen to. That being said, the CD suffers from problems with pacing, energy, and intensity. Jone's moody, sensual delivery can and does slide into sleepiness, as others have noted. Her delivery needs work, the selection of the material could have been made more upbeat, and her own compositions trimmed or perhaps removed altogether--they seem a bit premature. BUT this singer is a mere baby; give her time, there's much talent and potential here!
