Two years ago the American Carol Albert came up for the first time with the album "Fly Away Butterfly". Now this new album is coming out on January 31, 2020, with 10 original songs. In addition to Carol's piano work, you can hear Paul Brown on guitar (who also produced), Dan Baraszu on guitar, Lil John Roberts on drums, Jay Williams on drums, Sam Sims on bass, Ragan Whiteside on flute, Magdalena Chovancova on sax and Joseph Patrick Moore on bass. The title track leads us in the direction of smooth jazz, but with a poppy edge. Then comes the soft "Love again", and the beautiful, Brazilian-looking "Perfect Sunday". "For the Moment" continues quietly, and the Brazilian tinted "Femme Flight" has already been released as a single. "Winter Rain" is a soft song, followed by the second single, the Latin tinted "Sun’s out". Carol sings on ‘I Am Fine’ herself, while she plays modestly on ‘Moon on the Water’. Closer "Til We Meet again" is ushered in by an acoustic guitar, and floats to a strong rhythm. Carol has overcome the death of her husband, and has delivered a beautiful album, partly smooth jazz, partly poppy. Recommended!
