Reverie: Jazz Impressions

Milwaukee jazz songstress Julie Thompson issues a clear, sweet tone on her sophomore album. Balancing emotional nuance with a bell-like, almost motherly delivery, her restraint makes for a pleasing set of genre standards and show tunes. Piano, seven-string guitar, clarinet and a male a cappella quartet (on one cut) buoy Thompson's instrument but never take focus away from it. She’s easy enough on the ears to make that emphasis a fine thing.
