Singer and composer Penelope Sai, originally from Sydney spent nine years working and studying jazz vocals in Paris and now lives in the Blue Mountains. This album displays her talent in those areas. Her voice is crystalline clear, wide-ranging with a high top end capable of holding long notes, and she uses expressive, jazz-inflected phrasing. Siana features a talented backing group including Jonathan Zwartz and Sean Mackenzie. "This is a satisfying album by a vocalist-composer of unusual ability, with outstanding arranging and backing." John McBeath.
