The responsibility of a singer is mainly to best interpret the meaning of a lyric; to find the true heart-felt content that its writer had in mind, especially when it relates to the Great American Songbook. Jan Tober is well versed in this category. After all, she's had a professional role in the lives of bandleaders Stan Kenton, Benny Goodman, and Les Elgart. This CD is a slight departure from her previous jazz work. Here we find a more straight-ahead jazz feel that incorporates a quintet. Included in the repertoire are some of the greatest standards ever written. The full album contains 12 songs.
