Drawing from a broad palette of instrumental and rhythmiccoloration, The Sky Could Send You features re-imaginedjazz and Brazilian standards, original compositions bycontemporary artists and unexpected covers of pop tunessuch as Harry Belafonte’s Jamaica Farewell.Undulating world and jazz grooves provide a richfoundation for and, at times, stunning contrast to Sherri’s unique sense of phrasing and her very personal and intimate delivery of lyrics. Nothing is straight ahead here; this is jazz for the new millennium.In praising Sherri’s last outing, JazzTimes magazineexclaimed ‘Encore Ms. Roberts!’ We believe this newand exciting recording serves as a very fitting encore indeed.
This stylistically varied set of laid-back, musically impeccable jazz vocalizing from the Bay Area singer includes a couple of Caribbean calypso classics, some Rodgers and Hart tunes, and a slinky Latin composition by Antonio Carlos Jobim.
