Annie Lennox's ongoing evolution from New Wave ruler into U.K. queen of blue-eyed soul isn't exactly surprising – her magnificent voice has always had an R&B foundation, on display in this orchestral set of jazz and blues standards. "Summertime," "Strange Fruit" and "God Bless the Child" show reverence and impeccable technique yet not quite enough signature to transcend mere impressiveness. Standouts: the Andrews Sisters' "I Can Dream, Can't I?" playfully set to a cha-cha groove, and Ellington's "Mood Indigo," with barrel-house brass and raw, if measured, blues hollers. "C'mon, play that thing!" Lennox goads a horn player. One might say the same to her.
