Overview

Madeline Bell is not too well-known in the United States because, although American, she has lived in Great Britain for more than three decades, primarily performing pop music. She is a decent swing singer with an appealing voice but adds little new to the warhorse-dominated program that is heard on her collaboration with the Netherlands Metropole Orchestra. The only departures from the swing-era standards (which are swung without any real surprises, other than the inclusion of two versions of "I Got It Bad") are "Beat Out That Rhythm" (an adaptation of a Bizet melody), "Evergreen," and "Bridge Over Troubled Water." Those three overdramatic renditions are actually the obvious low points of the set -- routine pop music. A lesser effort overall, with rather routine arrangements despite its overall good intentions and a few bright moments (including an upbeat "Let Me Off In Harlem").
