Roberta Donnay – What’s Your Story? (Jazz CD)


Sound: B-     Music: C+



One of the stranger, odder female Jazz vocal releases recently has been Roberta Donnay’s What’s Your Story?  The 2006 release does not seem to know if it is happy, angry or maybe even petulant, but it has the amazing ability to get on one’s nerves and with covers like What’s Your Story, Morning Glory?, No Regrets, Put It Where You Want It and the appropriate to this set Johnny Mercer tune Drinkin’ Again.


This one did not turn me into an alcoholic, but only drinking music has more blues, anger and hopeless ness to it.  What was she thinking?


The PCM 2.0 16bit/44.1kHz Stereo is also an issue, simply not as well recorded as other recent Jazz vocal releases and escalates the troubles.  That is the end of my story.  Skip this one.
