Performance:   Sonics:  
I had not heard of Jacintha before, but when I bought my Arcam CD37, I bought several discs that the shop had in stock....
I was horrified that I'd missed out up until now! she has the most fantastic, wonderful, deep and resonating and pretty and soulful voice. If I had to take one disc to the desert island I'd take this (and also cram Brubecks Time Out in the same box)

Fabulous sound quality... it saved my speakers from upgraditis, I realised how good they could sound.

Review by Khorn June 29, 2003
Performance:   Sonics:
Jacintha does it her "own way" and it really works here. One can only marvel at how she nails what seems to be in many cases an off tempo presentation. After listening for a while you see how "right" she makes it sound. The great instrumental backing makes this recording all the more enjoyable. Jacintha's abilities are highlited by her presentation of the extremely difficult but, one of my favourite numbers, 'Harlem Nocturne' not an easy song to carry off.

As to the sonics this is one of the better SACDs that I have heard and shouldn't disappoint anyone in that department. I have her latest SACD on order and I am eagerly awaiting its arrival.

This SACD review is based on listening in 2 channel stereo.
