Chiara IzziChiara Izzi sings to the accompaniment of Kevin Hays/key-p, Rob Jost/b-frh, Greg Joseph/dr, Rogerio Boccato/perc, Chris Potter/ts-ss, Gregoire Maret/harm, Nir Felder/g and Omer Avital/oud on this eclectic mix of folk, bohemia and jazz. She does wonders with a personal read of Pat Metheny’s “James” teamed with Maret, and seamlessly enters the room after Hays’ intro to “I’ve Grown Accustomed to Her Face.” Delicate and fragile moods are created on “Circles of the Mind” and exotic skies team with Avital’s oud for a mystical “Verso Il Mare.” Lots of arts and crafts.
