Show Me [Palmetto]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide
After first coming out on Lemur Music in 2001, Kate McGarry's Show Me was reissued by Palmetto two years later with different art work. In a sense, the album's new front cover is misleading. Wearing a denim jacket, the jazz vocalist looks like she could be a folk singer or perhaps a traditional Irish-Celtic artist -- with a name like McGarry, one tends to think of all things Celtic.

Like so many jazz artists, McGarry tends to pick a lot of overdone warhorses that have been recorded countless times over the years. But because her performances are as likable and charming as they are, one is inclined to be forgiving. And to her credit, McGarry also finds some worthwhile songs that haven't been beaten to death in the jazz world including Brazilian star Djavan's "Oceano". In the future, McGarry would do well to be more adventurous and far-reaching in her choice of material -- after all, there are plenty of great songs that don't have a Tin Pan Alley connection.
