Comments:

This is an album with a lot of range and obviously a variety of influences—jazzy, sometimes Latin. The overall mood is lively and engaging (though there are some ballads, too) and the vocals strong, sweet, and sincere. A good album to put on when you need something upbeat.

Comments:

A very nice album with good songs and charming lyrics. Her voice is sweet without being cloying. The mix of styles makes for an entertaining listen.
     I'm particularly fond of the title track and the humorous "If I Only Had a Clone". (stjarnell@yahoo.com)
