With over 37 recordings to her credit, the latest by Beegie Adair “The Real Thing” is highly recommended. This is a most enjoyable live recording, with great song selections and arrangements. The CD stands out because you can put it on and let it play, all 11 songs and you do not have to skip over any of them. Favorites are the Latin classic - Besame Mucho, the rarely recorded - The Lamp Is Low and Duke Ellington’s - Caravan. Beegie Adair is featured on the piano, Roger Spencer on the bass and Chris Brown on the drums. It was recorded over two nights at “The Cave” part of the Nashville Jazz Workshop. Beegie said, “We decided that our theme for the concerts would simply be the songs we love to perform, old chestnuts that we have played many times.” This recording is one you will love to listen to.
