Ms. Borthwick is the treasure of the week under theÂ Clef Notes signature. Borthwick’s energy behind the strokes of the keys andÂ arrangements expose an unadulterated jazz talent with a road still yetÂ traveled.
â€œHomeâ€ hits the spin cycle I feel, a sensational comfort as aÂ foundation musically is expressed with this piece. The ivory precisionÂ allows that blanket of excellence to hover over the listener. Nice touch!Â With straight ahead jazz the focus on Lifelines is that of the appeal ofÂ oneâ€™s life in limbo. However the instrumental performance defines the exactÂ term with numerous sounds through a diverse arrangement. The work isÂ exceptional. Catch the sounds of Spalding on Lotus Lake a fineÂ experimentâ€¦
â€œA New Leafâ€ has fallen into lap of jazz – let it relax andÂ nurture its existence upon yoursâ€¦
