Correction: In previously reviewing Mindi Abair's "As Good As It Gets," we said she makes Art Deco/ techno-pop/electronica/adult-alternative-crossover/titanium-trendy/trip-hop/nouveau-club jazz records. It has come to our attention that this taxonomy is mistaken. Abair actually makes adult-electronica/pop- art/nouveau-alternative/trendy-techno/crossover-Deco/titanium-trip club-hopping jazz records. Sorry for any confusion. Also, we thought "As Good As It Gets" was just that. But "Make a Wish" is even better. Abair, producer Matthew Hager and co-writer Ty Stevens create not mere background for her winsome alto sax, but an aural American anime. Bish?jo bebop, anyone?
