A new treat for jazz-lovers: for the first time seven of these jazz standards have been translated into Te Reo Maori. But this alone is not what distinguishes the album; rather it is Whirimako's ability to lend her vocal talents to jazz singing and the musical sensitivity of her supporting group, a line-up which includes some of Aotearoa's finest jazz musicians.
