Every recording by San Francisco vocalist Sherri Roberts shares two defining characteristics, an intuitive mind-meld with a master instrumentalist, and a smartly curated array of undeservedly neglected songs. Her new CD Lovely Days, featuring her pillowy, pleasing unaffected vocals, highlights both aspects of her artistry.
A duo session for Pacific Coast Jazz, and her fourth recording as a leader, it's an intimate, emotionally incisive celebration of the American Songbook's infrequently turned back pages showcasing the brilliant but little-documented Bay Area pianist Bliss Rodriguez.
