All Music Guide - Ken Dryden
Lori Mechem is one of the active leaders of the Nashville Jazz Workshop, which is a jazz education program consisting of live performances and classes featuring local musicians and, occasionally, nationally known musicians. Return to Ipanema is the pianist's salute to the music of Antonio Carlos Jobim, with contributions by Denis Solee tenor and soprano saxes plus flute, guitarist Pete Huttlinger, bassist Roger Spencer, drummer Chris Brown, and percussionist Dann Sherrill, playing the arrangements of Jeff Steinberg. The performances are enjoyable background music, though they are a little too conservative as Solee is the only musician who is improvising most of the time, while the strings provide more of a background feel. An example is "The Girl from Ipanema," where Solee's tenor takes a few chances though not nearly enough, while Mechem sticks very close to the melody during her single chorus. Mechem does loosen up in "One Note Samba" and Solee's adventurous soprano seems to stimulate the leader a bit in the breezy "So Danco Samba." But because these compositions have been recorded so frequently in a jazz setting, they deserve to be played a little looser than many of them are on this session.
