A great album by a fine jazz vocalist!
With this recording, Cheryl Bentyne places herself in the ranks of such superstars Peggy Lee, Julie London and Annie Ross. Yet Cheryl has a completely original sound. Her crisp, clear and bright soprano is a refreshing change to the current staple of jazz singers who all seem to be husky-voiced altos (although, she has no problem dropping down to a full-bodied contralto). Cheryl sings with sensitivity and sensuality -- and the woman knows how to swing. She is one of the best out there! A must for fans of vocal jazz.

A new fan of Cheryl Bentyne
Wow, this woman is good! I first heard stumbled on this album when a friend was playing it and I fell in love with it. I can see why people gave it 5stars! Cheryl has a beautiful voice and the songs are real jazzy. Diana Krall, watch out!

FINALLY..........another magical treat from Ms. Bentyne!
Having been an ardent fan of Ms. Bentyne ever since I happened upon the long out-of-print album "Something Cool" from 1992, I jumped to get this album when it became available. And I must say, Ms. Bentyne fulfills every wish. Whereas noone should contest that the voice is one of the most musical in contemporary music, with this album she has decided to do evergreens by for instance Cole Porter and Richard Rodgers. Sit back, put your feet up and listen to this timeless album - it is BOUND to put you in a great mood!

CB's latest is a winner!
Cheryl Bentyne, a member of the vocal group, Manhattan Transfer, has released her second solo album, entitled "Talk Of The Town." Although her first solo effort (1992's "Something Cool") was released 10 years ago, little has changed in this talented singer's voice. Backed a solid jazz ensemble, (Kenny Barron, John Patittuci, Lewis Nash, David "Fathead" Newman, Corey Allen, Chuck Mangione.) Bentyne's diamond clear soprano rips through such songs as Annie Ross's vocalese classic, "Farmer's Market" and Cole Porter's, "Get Out of Town." She brilliantly takes the traditional ballad "Love Me Or Leave Me," gently swings it, giving it a cool and sexy attitude. Listen to her reading of "They Can't Take That Away From Me" and her interpretation of the line "the way you hold your knife." Other singers offer the lyric as just a hazy memory, but Bentyne infuses it with the sensuality of a woman who finds everything her partner does a turn-on! Her interpretation of ballads is just as impressive - she gives sensitive and understated readings to such timeless evergreens as Ray Noble's "The Very Thought Of You" (featuring Newman on Sax) and Bobby Troup's "Meaning of the Blues" (the latter backed only by Kenny Barron's fine piano playing). In fact the entire CD is a gem! Other highlights are ballads "Still Good Friends" (written by Bentyne and her husband, album producer Corey Allen) and "Those Foolish Things." A Latin climb surrounds "It Might As Well Be Spring," (courtesy of Allen on piano and Don Alias on percussion) and two members of "Take 6" offer tight backup harmony on a rousing "Girl Talk." This album is produced by King Records, a label in Japan. However, the talent involved with this fine CD is worth the import price.

This is my first Cheryl Bentyne solo album. In the past, Cheryl’s voice has provided great harmonic sounds to the Manhattan Transfer and New Deal. Her Talk of the Town CD is outstanding in musicianship, songs, arrangements, and studio engineering. This is an all round 5 star performance. Importantly, her ability to impeccably phrase slow ballads is most enjoyable. In particular, “You’d Will Be Nice To Come Home To” and “Everything Happens To Me”. The last track, “Still Good Friends” is an interesting piano duet with Carey Allen.
