The songs on the album are melodic, mainstream tunes in the jazz standard tradition - jazz fans may recognise some of the chord changes as being influenced by the great songwriters such as Gershwin, Cole Porter & Carmichael.
Janet Galloway's voice is both warm & emotional, possessing a great control & rich timbre. She is surely one of England's undiscovered vocal talents!
