Rebecca Kilgore is the real thing. She swings all right, without noticeable effort, which is what swing is about - think not just of Ella Fitzgerald and Maxine Sullivan but of instrumentalists such as Johnny Hodges, Bobby Hackett and Zoot Sims. Her pitch is so sure that you never find yourself thinking about it; it never becomes an issue, the way it does with singers whose intonation is less certain. This is surely a natural gift, along with her good time and good ear. Appearing with Dave Frishberg, best known now as a singer-songwriter, but present here in his secret identity of accompanist and solo pianist, they were recorded live on the final night of their longstanding gig at the Heathman Hotel in Portland, Oregon. From the album notes by Francis Davis, a Contributing Editor of The Atlantic Monthly and noted writer about jazz.
