Cheryl Bentyne, known as an important member of the super vocal group Manhattan Transfer, has had a successful solo career as well, and has released several well-received solo CDs from King Records of Japan. Now comes her latest release, Songs Of Our Time.

As the title indicates, this is a collection of hit songs from the past few decades -- Bentyne's take on "standards" of our time. The eclectic selections include songs composed or made famous by The Carpenters, Carol King, Brenda Russell, Joni Mitchell, Cyndi Lauper and Norah Jones. For a nod to Japanese fans, she included a very popular ballad by a Japanese rock band "Ellie My Love."

Bentyne does not "jazz up" these tunes too much: She mostly sings the tunes straight and with very little improvisation. With her husband and talented pianist Corey Allen as co-producer and a cracking band of Los Angeles-based jazz musicians such as Kevin Axt (The Tierney Sutton Band), what she tried to do here was to give us a very high quality, adult-oriented pop album.

And, I must say, she succeeded! The tempi are mostly medium to slow, and the mood is relaxed and mellow. While the CD may be a bit more "produced" than typical straight-ahead jazz CDs, the sound quality is superb and will please audiophiles as well. A strong recommendation for jazz fans and non-jazz fans alike!

Produced by Corey Allen and Tom McCauley. Recorded on January 29 and 30 and February 12 and 14, 2008 at B2 Studios, Valley Village, CA.
