Overview

Nancy Kelly has often found herself compared to Dianne Schuur, and the comparison rings true on Singin' and Swingin', a highly arranged CD that has as much to do with pop as it does with jazz. The singer (who has a charming quality to her voice) isn't a hardcore, true-blue improviser, but she does provide some decent scat singing on occasion. Kelly gets into a jazz groove on Duke Pearson's "Jeanine" and Cole Porter's "It's Alright With Me," while her take on Fats Waller's "The Joint Is Jumpin'" isn't unlike the sort of cabaret-influenced jazz Susannah McCorkle would do. But on material ranging from the standard "Young and Foolish" to Chaka Khan's "Through the Fire" and the Captain and Tennille's "Come In From the Rain," you're hearing what is essentially jazzy pop. Although not fantastic and not very challenging, Singin' and Swingin' is a pleasant, if conventional, release that has its moments. ~ Alex Henderson
