Annie Ross,
To Lady with Love
(Red Anchor, 2014)

To Lady with Love is a very personal and intimate album. Annie Ross's vocals are spoken/sung, and the guitar work from Bucky and John Pizzarelli is superb and equally personal in execution. The whole album was recorded in one 4.5-hour session, and that shows, too -- there is nothing over-produced here, just excellent music from excellent artists, with a spontaneous feel.

The liner notes are interesting and informative, and there is also a DVD with interviews with all three artists that offers some additional context for the music.

I strongly recommend this for jazz fans. Even if you're not, it's a solid album.
