Victoria Water Lillies
Nesrin Sen has released two albums before, both beautiful records. Her new effort is a jazzy, inspired offering that clearly recalls her previous work.
"Just Howl" is soft and beautifully wrought. It has a touch of David Sylvian's solo work, in a modern way. "Like they almost do" is a summery song with a sensitive lead vocal handled well
by Sen. The band play with expert precision. The title song is a bossa played straight, the band proving adept at this too. It's a lovely song. "Honey Bee" is a song in a nice mid-tempo style
with Sen's vocals taking centre stage. She's a gifted artist who should be much better known than she is. It's a wonderful album.
