Happy Hardiman (Music Thoughts: Honoring Ella!, Rebecca Hardiman)

FrontDidn’t I just write about about an Ella tribute a week ago? Well, brace yourself cause here is another one – Rebecca Hardiman with er album ‘Honoring Ella!’  Don’t ask me why there is an exclamation point in her title – probably she is just excited and happy about honoring the First Lady Of Jazz.  But perhaps also because most of the album is Hardiman is at her swinging best – and she does have a chirpy and happy disposition in her singing. I didn’t mind this album at all – it was fun and bouncy listen, and I even like the scat in ‘You Turned The Tables On Me,’ and for a moment there I thought it did not sound forced or contrived. The best thing? I searched her on Spotify and put this album on my cjurated jazzette playlist.
