Two sublime sides from femme fatale Sylvie Mora. Both Summertime and Taboo are of course well established standards, but the treatment here of each is really unique.

Summertime gets a truly expansive work over, switching between soft and slow paced acapella vocal sections which then erupt into explosive brass and drum-led riffs. On the other side, Taboo, perhaps the quintessential jazz exotica work of the early to mid-century, sounds more seductive than ever before by virtue of Mora's sultry, slinky vocals, and once again the backing orchestra is fantastic.
