Overview

Mindi Abair's GRP debut, It Just Happens That Way, showcases the multi-talented artist's pop-influenced vision of jazz. The saxophonist/vocalist/percussionist and composer offers listeners 12 exceptional tunes on which she plays alto and soprano saxophones, keyboards, vox, and wind chimes. Best known for her featured solos on tour with the Backstreet Boys, Mindi Abair is both invigorating and exciting. She finds a new challenge with Eagle-Eye Cherry's smash hit "Save Tonight," on which she showcases her inviting vocals, which are reminiscent of Norah Jones and Sheryl Crow. Abair co-wrote all but one of the CD's tracks, including "Save the Last Dance," "Flirt,"and "Lucy's." Overall, the debut is a sure indication that Mindi Abair has much more to offer than just a pretty face.
