Photograph by Andrea Mann
Released: May 2009
Label: Andrea Mann
Photograph is a ballad set, and Andrea Mann's straightforward, sometimes-minimalist approach is backed by a crackerjack quartet that can play midnight jazz and sunny bossa nova. Mann handles American standards such as "Scotch & Soda," "East of the Sun" and "Travelin' Light" with ease, but she chooses her repertoire carefully. Macca's "Every Night" should have been done in a jazz context decades ago, and the vocalist also brings out new elements in Coldplay's "Sparks." These are mostly covers, but -- as with her fine original, "Yosemite" -- Andrea Mann swings through an old profession in new and beguiling ways.
