Donna E. Scott: Carnival

Vocalist Donna E. and teams up with a mix of supporting artists for an upbeat and confident delivery of standards. Her sandied voice works well with a brassy support on “Pennies From Heaven” while going droll with Johnny Gonzales’ tenor sax on “I Don’t Stand A Ghost of A Chance With You.” Some soul and R&B hits the right spot on “ After the Sunset” while Skip Nallia’s B3 simmers with Luther Rada’s guitar on a shuffling “I Don’t Want You Anymore.” Scott lets loose on a full bodied and big banded Latin lilt for “On Green Dolphin Street” while scintillates on “It’s Your Smile.” Winning ways.
