At an age most artists are just launching their careers, Veronica Swift is a knowing veteran of the stage. But to be awed at her precocity misses the point. Swift is a fearless performer who displays deep and pure musicality in her singing and scatting, a truly rare gift. Her interplay with fellow musicians is a hallmark of her talent, and here she is matched with the remarkable hard bop pianist Benny Green and his trio. Expect new life breathed into nuggets from the Great American Songbook, Tin Pan Alley and beyond.
