This album is a great reminder of why I still go to concerts. I recently enjoyed a performance by alto saxophonist Grace Kelly, whose hard bop jazz sensibilities showed impressive maturity. Kelly’s new concert release in no way resembles that night. The album seems to be a conscious attempt to recast this traditionalist as a singer who occasionally picks up her horn. There are backing vocalists, a cello, a trumpet and a ukulele. All of this is clutter, which severely impedes a clear view of Kelly’s great talent.


Poll

The U.S. Supreme Court announced that it will hear the case to determine if Wisconsin Republicans’ redistricting maps are too partisan. Do you believe the U.S. Supreme Court will order Wisconsin to redraw our legislative maps so the majority of legislative districts are competitive and voters will actually have a real choice between a Democrat and Republican?

Getting poll results. Please wait...
