For musical taste, delicacy of interpretation and presentational flair Tina May has always been a hard act to follow. She is also completely at home in jazz, which isn’t as common among high-profile singers as you might think. The way she negotiates Clifford Brown’s “Daahoud” (here retitled “Beloved”) demonstrates that. Her choice of songs is as hip as anyone could wish, including pieces by Kenny Wheeler, Oliver Nelson and Horace Silver. With the immaculate piano of Nikki Iles and occasional touches of tenor saxophone from Karen Sharp, this is a delight.
