Flo’s Flow (Music Thoughts: Picture In A Frame, Flo McSweeney)

8ad4af7f37ef224618ba97f74417f837Maybe now that I am a little older, I can relate more to voices that sound more weathered. Flo McSweeney (I think she is from Ireland) doesn’t sound old per se, but you can sense her experience and wisdom through the way she interprets songs in her new album, ‘Picture In a Frame.’  She has an eclectic mix of songs here: ‘Leaving the Table,’ and Tom Waits’ ‘Picture In A Frame’ stand out to me among her other interpretations.  Her style skews more pop than jazz, and that’s not a bad thing. McSweeney sounds like she knows what she is singing about, and nowadays that’s more than enough.
