The Dave Miller Trio with Rebecca Dumaine: The Consequence of You

Very rarely do you see the vocalist not the leader in a band, but here it’s the “trio” of dave Miller/p, Mario Suraci/b Bill Belasco/dr and guitarist Brad Buethe that fronts vocalist Rebecca Dumaine through a series of standards. Dumaine works with Belasco’s drums to supreme satisfaction as the team slowly ambulates in on “Beautiful Love” and sounds relaxed in the quiet mood of Miller’s piano on “Pure Imagination” and “They say It’s Spring.” Her conversant and semi-soto voice works well on “One Note samba” and a bossa’d read of “There Will Never Be Another You” and shows she knows how to bear down as she throws some heat on “Down With Love.” Her maturity of delivery makes “You’ve changed not as dreary as usual, but more with resigned regret and she skates like a gold medal winner on “The Face That I Love.” A pro outing
