Road Trip CD Review
A talented singer based in Southern California, Judy Chamberlain has a warm voice, a versatile yet consistently swinging style, and the ability to bring out fresh meaning in even the most familiar lyrics.
For her long overdue debut recording, Road Trip, she is joined by a particularly strong rhythm section. Bill Cunliffe (on piano and organ) and guitarist Ron Eschete are among the best in their field, contributing concise and tasteful solos along with subtle support. Bassist Benjamin May is excellent, particularly when playing bowed on “Mona Lisa,” where he harmonizes with Chamberlain’s voice, while drummer Dave Tull offers a steady pulse and effective support. However the main star throughout is the singer, who is heard in joyful form on “Just You, Just Me,”
