Two sublime sides from femme fatale Sylvie Mora. Both "Summertime" and "Taboo" are of course well established standards, but the treatment here of each is really unique. "Summertime" gets a truly expansive work-over, switching between soft- and slow-paced a cappella vocal sections that then erupt into explosive brass- and drum-led riffs. On the other side, "Taboo," perhaps the quintessential jazz exotica work of the early- to mid-century, sounds more seductive than ever before by virtue of Mora's sultry, slinky vocals, and once again the backing orchestra is fantastic.
