Kristy | My Romance

Alma Records ACD11082 • CD • www.almarecords.com

Kristy Cardinali sings straight. Her voice is clear, she stays within her range, and her phrasing is neat, though she could develop a bit more flow. She respects the songs she’s chosen, and her choices show excellent taste. Ms. Cardinali’s song list is 100% classic. At least four were recorded by Sinatra and Nat King Cole in the '50s. American Songbook authors include Cole Porter, Rogers and Hart, Johnny Mercer, Burke and Van Heusen. Backing her are a cream dream team of Metro musicians: on piano, Robi Botos; on bass, Don Thompson; on flugelhorn, Guido Basso; on guitars, Kevin Breit, to name a few. This is a very listenable album and a solid basis for a promising career.
