Yes, there are undiscovered gems in the growing ranks of self-produced CDs. Dollison is a major talent who deserves a bigger platform than this low-profile release. She has developed her own ineffable sound, a little breathless and slightly-out-of-control style, but very, very jazzy. And she doesn't just sing the standards, she completely reinvents them. This is an autumn in New York you haven't seen before, with bright electric leaves floating up into the chiaroscuro air. The rhythm section also deserves kudos for their contribution on this inspired performance.
