KJ Denhert has made an album of mostly covers sound very personal indeed. Her warm vocals and guitar playing keeps a steady profile throughout. She brings real class to the oft-covered "Alfie" and "Pennies from heaven." Her velvety vocals are a treat on any song. "Let it go" is one of her original songs, and it's mellow and jazzy and very pleasant. An unexpected cover of "Smoke on the water"nonetheless works just fine. It's a confident, jazzy reading that really swings in a cool fashion. It's an exceptional and pleasant album. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
