Rachel Garlin has made an intriguing intimate style on this album. "Gwendolyn Said" is a fascinating account of poet Gwendolyn Brooks, set to a worthy melody. Garlin is good at this, and
her themes are wonderfully done.
"Hey Keith Haring" is about the artist and it paints a nice picture of him and his art. "The Sea You See" is a beautiful tune with a nice mood, Garlin singing like an angel. "Up on a Ladder
in Boots" has a great theme about a female painter taking risks. It's a gorgeous tune and a strong lyric like so many others on this album. Garlin has made a lovely album, and she deserves
a wide audience.
