All the Ghosts

by Gwyneth Herbert

This album shows that Gwyneth Herbert can do much more than sing jazz standards. (Which she can also do beautifully, but not on this record.) All songs here are written by Ms Herbert bar the last (hidden) track, the cover of Bowie’s Rock ’n’ Roll Suicide (which is not bad, but I can live without it just fine). And her band is as good as one can dream. My favourites are Lorelei, My Narrow Man and Put Your Mouth Where Your Money Is.
