Review:
Singer-songwriter Jessica Harper doesn't top herself. That would be hard to do, when with every album she creates astonishing family music, elegant, and alive with Harper's palpable delight in playing with words, harmony and jazz rhythms. In this collection, loosely inspired by famous paintings, listeners are encouraged to explore their own creative spirit and individuality ("Not Your Father's" and "Stay Three") and life is a "Joy Ride," a "Starry Night" is for dreaming and "Friendship" is "a good ship, if you sail it where it goes." Harper's creamy alto and notable musical sophistication are complemented by a host of superb musicians. Not to be missed.
