Leslie Ritter & Scott Petito
Country of origin:
Type of music generally:
Beautiful contemporary folk
Most recent release, This Christmas Morning (seasonal, 2005); most recent regular release, Circles in Sand (2001)
Joni Mitchell, of course. Just a little Stevie Nicks.
A mix of own and covers
Although I love their work, I was a little disappointed to hear Joni Mitchell's song, "Woodstock" sound too much like an impersonation than anything else. Clearly, Leslie knows every single nuance of Joni Mitchell's voice, but I would have preferred a less distracting version. That does not mean that it was a BAD recording, but for me, it took away from exploring Leslie's own talents. (Anachro1@pacbell.net)
Recommended first album:
Circles in Sand is the first we've heard
See website for availability
In my opinion, not really. But it will find its fans. A very good recording! (Anachro1@pacbell.net)
Jerry Marotta—drums, percussion
These two are well suited together; they know each others' style and how to work with it. Sheer poetry in the lyrics! I'd love to hear her record some old blues or jazz standards; there's this slightly gravely flavor to her voice. Many good songs on the disc. (Anachro1@pacbell.net)
