Smoothjazz.com review of It's That Girl Again

I just now saw this on itunes and Amazon, posted in July by Sandy Shore of smoothjazz.com:

"It is, indeed, that girl again, and we're delighted that she's recorded her first solo album since 1997. Smooth Jazz loves Basia, as evidenced by the fact that this CD's first single, "Blame It On the Summer," has been high on the charts for several weeks, with much more to come from this outstanding project. Basia's collaborated once again with Danny White to create a truly dazzling collection of originals that at once sound totally fresh, yet still familiar. Her trademark sound is as appealing now as those first days with Matt Bianco (WHOSE SIDE ARE YOU ONE) [sic] in 1984 and her first solo project, TIME AND TIDE in `86. IT'S THAT GIRL AGAIN revisits Basia's global pop/jazz sound, combining irresistible melodies with inspired lyrics and stunning, vibrant instrumentation, including Danny's brother Peter's signature guitar work. It's a marvelous reunion... Basia and Smooth Jazz... it'll keep us wanting more! ~SCOTT O'BRIEN"

Some of this sounds familiar ;) but they do give it 5 out of 5 stars. Nice!

    I used to listen to Sandy Shore when she was a DJ for then-Smooth Jazz station KXDC in Monterey, California. She also sponsored/promoted artists on the side. Sadly, the station managers went to a different format and left her and listeners in the cold.

    infrequently checking your site now due to various issues :-(, but I have still procured a few Basia rarities.
