Whisper Not

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Ken Dryden
Osi Lewin is an Israeli-born singer with a wide-ranging interest in music and foreign languages, all of which serve her well in her debut CD, which features the support of a solid rhythm section. She sings a hard bop classic, "Whisper Not," with authority and a touch of playfulness, while slipping as comfortably into the cool swinger "Lullaby of Birdland."
