Stuff in the Air That Came Out of Speakers Today #56

Strong jazz/blues vocal album:

Natalia M. King, Bluezzin T’il Dawn (Challenge, 2016)

Worst decision: The incorporation of “Take 5” into the original “Baby Brand New” is heavy-handed and trite.

Best decision: Closing the program with the wistful, emotionally elusive song, “Little Bit of Rain” by Fred Neil.

Good overall sign: King’s originals indicate she understands the seductive and strange qualities of Neil.
