After several years of performing together on occasion, guitarist VINCE LEWIS and singer/guitarist BARBARA MARTIN have finally made it into a recording studio, and the result is the delightful Fresh Air (Vinbara Music 107). They mix some original material with classics from the Great American Songbook, and add in as an opener Wes Montgomery s West Coast Blues. Lewis has come onto my radar during the last few years, and his nimble guitar artistry continues to impress. Martin is a singer who effectively combines her natural feel for lyric interpretation with passionate vocalizing, resulting is convincing readings of each selection. She also happens to be an interesting lyricist, whether setting words to her own melodies or those of Lewis. This is a very personal recording that has the effect of making the listener feel that the musicians have directed their efforts directly to him or her. --Jersey Jazz
