Let Me Off Uptown

Taking a busman's holiday from her main gig, the popular vocal quartet Manhattan Transfer, singer Cheryl Bentyne uses her second solo album to salute one of her main influences, Anita O'Day. Delving into the treasure trove of popular song that O'Day specialized in, Bentyne lends her own special qualities to such gems as "Skylark," "Little Girl Blue," and "I Won't Dance," as well as spirited fare like the title tune, where she's joined by the engaging trumpeter/vocalist Jack Sheldon. Manhattan Tranfer fans may know Bentyne’s skill and charm, but for those who haven't yet discovered her impressive abilities, this heartfelt and beautifully executed tribute will come as a delightful surprise.

Cheryl Bentyne is rapidly becoming my favorite singer. This album is joyous and it's because of Bentyne...She can be swinging and fun and then seductive and intimate. It effectively evokes the music of the great Anita O'Day, the big band sound of the 1940s, and the quiet cool of the 1950s. Bentyne proves herself as one of the jazz world's most talented singers. This disc has it all.
