along with pop covers such as Simply Red's "Holding Back the Years" and Mary J. Blige's "All That I Can Say," The fifteen track disc includes a handful of impressive Parlato originals, most notably the sensual, R & B flavored "Better Than," with light-as-air phrasing and hypnotic syncopated rim shots from Scott. A fondness for Brazilian music is heard on a cover of Paulinho's "Alo Alo," with a dance-like vocal line over multiple percussion parts, all performed by Parlato. Wayne Shorter's classic jazz waltz "Juju" stands out strong with Parlato's original lyrics and Stephens' soaring tenor sax.
An in demand artist, having recorded with the likes of Terence Blanchard and Esperanza Spalding, Parlato is on her way to becoming a mainstay in the field of jazz vocalists. The Lost and Found is sure to add to her growing allure.
