Here's the new Stacey Kent.

Naama Gheber is excellent on the deftly swinging title track of April's Dearly Beloved. With pianist Ray Gallon, bassist David Wong, drummer Aaron Kimmel and the great vibist Steve Nelson the singer who has a joyously effortless style coming out of a classic jazz vocals tradition, is on the title track, a Johnny Mercer and Jerome Kern song that Fred Astaire sang in the 1940s.

Graduating from the New School in 2017 Gheber is part of the Mezzrow scene, to many connoisseurs the ultimate New York city intimate jazz spot. photo: Twitter
