Shivani Kumar: Where Do We Go From Here

Here’s a lady that knows here way around a song. Shivani Kumar works with a trio of trios here as she tackles a Baker’s Dozen standards. She has a comfortable and assured presence in her delivery, sounding hip on the bopping tunes like “A Night In Tunisia” and a snappy “Well You Needn’t.” She does wonders with dynamics, going rich and deep on “ Softly, As In a Morning Sunrise” and gives a sensuous but comfy lilt to “Beautiful Love.” Her pacing of a lyric is faultless, taking you at just the right speed on  “I’ve Got You Under My Skin” and dreamily delivering “Dindi.” A real pro, here, with no posing.
