I credit Jim Wilke of KPLU-FM in Seattle, for turning me on to Meredith d'Ambrosio. He played "The Cove" (Sunnyside) and I was hooked. Keep on playing and singing, Meredith, you're a gem!

Of all the things Meredith has recorded that I've heard (more than half of her output, I think), a particular favorite is "Moon Dreams" on "Beware of Spring." It captures more of the great Gil Evans-Miles Davis "Birth of the Cool" recording than one would think possible, while also retaining its own identity. Meredith's bottom-of-her range notes on this piece are incredible!
