Best Jazz Vocal Album

...you hear the voice — that voice, 
one of the most dreamily mellifluous timbres in jazz, is instantly recognizable. 

Gretchen Parlato, the Grammy-nominated composer and vocalist, 
and one of the most imaginative and inspiring artists on the scene, is back. 

And oh, how we’ve missed her. 

...her brilliant new Brazilian-flavoured album on Edition is her best yet. 

—Peter Quinn, Jazzwise Magazine
