Co-produced by Schuur and Grammy winning saxophonist Ernie Watts, this project features music by some of her heroes, from Miles Davis to Carole King to Paul Simon. “I chose all the compositions for this album. I’ve been focusing on the condition of our world, about what is, about what can be,” explains Schuur. 

Blues, straight-ahead jazz, gospel, and a few tunes that defy classification are included. Percy Mayfield’s “Walking on A Tightrope” opens, setting the tone as she sings “the blues and I, we know each other.” Schuur exudes admiration for Dinah Washington with “This Bitter Earth,” and celebrates the unifying lyrics of Miles Davis’ “All Blues.” The hard-swinging interpretation of Paul Simon’s “Something So Right” demonstrates the jazz chops of this album’s tight ensemble. Schuur showcases her musical skills as an instrumentalist, closing with lone piano on the spiritual “Swing Low Sweet Chariot.”
