Secret Life of a Girl
Jazz singer Christine Tobin uses mostly original material on her new album and it works well. She has a sweet, expressive style and a unique style.
"Camille" is a soft, hushed song delivered with expert timing. Tobin sings of and has twinkle in her eye. "Dreamland" is a marvelously sung song, a cello
played by Kate Shortt adding to the sound. Tobin covers Cohen's "Everybody Knows" and it's a deft, highly personal take on the song. She scats beautifully
"Minx" is a wry song about a woman's viewpoint. Tobin carries it off with style and flair. The rhythmic backing is well accomplished. Christine Tobin's
new album is superb.
