Swiney, for her part, lives up to the on-point backing with soulful, interpretive vocals. Rather than opt for the breathy, breezy approach of classic Astrud Gilberto, Swiney's brassy delivery gives the songs a stronger profile. Ed Finney, as musical director, creates perfect settings for her voice, lending his own imaginative guitar lines as needed, and even contributing the title song, which is perhaps the real standout track here. It twists and turns with a graceful melody and intriguing changes. Swiney's sole original here, “Bossa Nova Casanova,” is more of a bon bon, a lighthearted study of the man who makes all the ladies swoon. All told, this is a great showcase for not just Swiney, but the entire Memphis jazz community.
