Barbara Nelsom – Pick Of The Litter

For her eleventh release the snazzy, Jazzy Ms. Nelson has lifted the “Pick Of The Litter” from her first ten but, of course, there’s not a dog among them. ‘ Could NOT resist that one!

Cover CD Barbara Nelsom – Pick Of The Litter
While Nelson’s smooth, Big Band style of delivery is always enjoyable, these particular songs are among her favorites to perform. One suspects that adds a certain extra twinkle to her enthusiasm. If you have somehow missed getting with the program regarding this artist, here’s your Whitman’s Sampler of the best. Western Swing, Jazz and ‘Torchy’ Blues are her principle focus which allows for some outright Western to be present as well. “Miles and Miles of Texas,” “The Gift,” “Colorado Trail,” “They Call The Wind Mariah,” “Cow Cow Boogie” and “Along The Santa Fe Trail” nestle in comfortably with standards like “Crazy,” “Moon River,” “Georgia” and eight others.
For older folks there is sweet nostalgia. For the younger set there is surprising discovery. You can rightly assume that assessment means I’m going to highly recommend it! Fifteen tracks total.
CD: $15 + $3 s/h from Barbara Nelson, 72521 Tutuilla Creek Rd., Pendleton, OR 97801, through music.apple.com/ and cd baby.com.
