The ARCVJE 2008-2009, directed by master teacher/director Dr. Art Lapierre, brings us another sweet, jazzy collection of accompanied Vocal Jazz, all the way from beautiful Sacramento, CA. The seven tunes (accompanied by an excellent student Jazz ensemble) are a scattish, upbeat take on Burton Lane & Alan Jay Lerner's "On a Clear Day," Billy Strayhorn's moody "Lush Life," Sunny Wilkinson & Brian Atchison's bluesy, romantic title tune, Eddie Harrison's sassy, sexy "You Know It's Wrong," Jimmy Giuffre & Jon Hendricks' scattish, upbeat "Four Brothers," Todd Buffa's driving, bluenote "American Eyes" and Gerry Niewood's happy, upbeat "Joy." Every one of these collections is a winner, and every one is hard to believe that these are college students. If you love Jazz, open "Your Eyes!"
