With ensemble vocal jazz, the danger is always that tight and complex harmony writing will come across as too smooth and too sweet – for some reason, chords that sound sharp and bracing when distributed among reed instruments can sound cloying and overly slick when sung by human voices. The vocal/instrumental quartet New York Voices don't avoid that trap entirely on their latest album (and their first as an ensemble in seven years), but they continue to demonstrate their mastery of the genre with a solid program of new and old songs and innovative arrangements. Their take on "Darn That Dream" is startlingly new (and features a fine bass clarinet solo by Bob Mintzer), and the lyrics that group members added to John Coltrane's "Moment's Notice" work very nicely. Not everyone will agree that the world needed a vocal jazz version of Laura Nyro's "Stoned Soul Picnic," but the New York Voices' version is really lots of fun and is sure to bring a nostalgic tear to more than one baby-boomer eye. Apart from a couple of saccharine moments on "In the Wee Small Hours of the Morning," A Day Like This is a pleasure from start to finish. Recommended.

"A Place Like This" is Robbie Nevil's second album, released in November 1988. Nevil's work is strong, with poppy hooks and bluesy rhythms. The songs tend to be more mellow than one would expect of a long-haired guy wearing leather, but while Nevil is an accomplished guitarist, his songs tend to smoother, more laid-back grooves. "Back on Holiday" stands out for both its strong melodies and funky vibe. While the themes of the album tend towards romance ("Mary Lou" is about a shy librarian who shows up at a party in unexpected style; "Love and Money" suggests that the subject of the song get their priorities straight), that shouldn't deter the listener.

Classic songs from the Great American Songbook, re-imagined through fresh, exciting arrangements. An awesome collection of romantic moods and swinging grooves, blending the deep tradition of the art form with contemporary style. Three original songs too!It would be easy to give a pass to vocalist Bryan Anthony if he had wanted to do a no-surprises take on standards. Love, in all its complexity, is the topic of choice on this record, and Anthony plays the role in each song to perfection. Youthful zest and the thrill of possibility reside in some of these pieces, while an "I let her get away and I've only got my memories" attitude appears elsewhere.

Why do we obsess over something we want, worry about keeping what we have, or long to get it back once it’s gone? Why do we insist that someone love us, even if he or she clearly does not? Why do we go through life burdened by guilt, clinging to the past or worried about the future?

Anne Wynter might not be who she says she is… But she's managing quite well as a governess to three highborn young ladies. Her job can be a challenge: in a single week she finds herself hiding in a closet full of tubas, playing an evil queen in a play that might be a tragedy (or might be a comedy; no one is sure), and tending to the wounds of the oh-so-dashing Earl of Winstead. After years of dodging unwanted advances, he's the first man who has truly tempted her, and it's getting harder and harder to remind herself that a governess has no business flirting with a nobleman…

If you really liked 18 Til I Die, then at first you might be a little disappointed with this album, or make that a lot… that's how I felt. It just didn't have that same melodic edge or the songwriting as the previous one. But for some reason it really grew on me, to a point where I actually like this one more…
