"Serenade in Blue" is one of Price's finest performances on this CD. Thanks to her seemingly perfect pitch, artfully sustained notes and gorgeous vibrato, Price conquers this tricky theme in graceful and captivating fashion. She displays a range of attack that extends from a purring, silky smoothness, to a hard-edged brassiness, and handles the jaunty, backbeated midsection with authority. Pianist Wolf's sparse, pensive intro, and bluesy solo with its darting arpeggios, contribute notably to the success of this highly recommended track. Price may be a star about to be born.
