Following her smash hit Venus debut album Moon River, her eagerly awaited second album, Fly Me To The Moon, finally arrived. Her bass playing is more powerful and emotive, and her singing gained on the sultry quotient. Just listen to the very sexy “Do It Again”. Nicki surrounded herself with wonderful musicians again. John di Martino, Billy Drummond and Harry Allen – familiar faces from the previous album – are joined by Nicki’s sister Lisa, who plays baritone and soprano saxophones, and guitarist Mark Sganga. The audiophile recording enhances the value of this wonderful release. Highly recommended!
