Peggy Lee Band - Worlds Apart
Peggy Lee’s third album with her band adds little to her writing style, but it perfects it to a new level. Picking up where Sounds from the Big House had left, the album showcases even more assured writing and a group of musicians completely attuned to each other. Except for bassist Andre Lechance replacing Chris Tarry, the lineup remains the same. Brad Turner’s trumpet is still the lyrical asset of the ensemble; Tony Wilson’s discreet guitar work provides the mellow, slightly sad moods; Jeremy Berkman’s trombone and Lee’s cello join in beautiful melodic dialogues.
