Some big league female talents are coming up with the hits! - By Jonathan Takiff - Philadelphia Daily News
YULE LIKE HER: I had to scrub my vow to not play any Christams albums before November, so I could check out what Chester's gift to jazz vocalizing, ANNA WILSON, had to share on "Yule Swing!" (Transfer, A-).
And what a hoot it turned out to be, with original WIlson tunes and sophisticated, horn-and piano-flecked arrangementsthat reflect her love and mastery of classic-jazz pop.
Faves include the title track, which sounds like variations on the theme of Frank Sinatra's "Come Fly With Me"; Wilson's winning ballad gifts, "Wish" and "Through Their Eyes"; the bluesy, adults-only romp "Holiday Lovin' and the winking homage to a "Mrs. Claus" who's dressed in red and looking hot, hot, hot.
