Sue Raney is one of the most highly regarded vocalists in jazz today. Her performances on this CD and its predecessor demonstrate her considerable technique and natural talent. Volume II features several compositions written by Sue Raney: "Burnt Sugar" and "No Place To Go" (co-written with Ed Yellin), both well crafted songs that reveal the depth of her musical writing ability. She also performs Michel Legrand's "Umbrellas of Cherbourg", Alec Wilder's "Trouble Is A Man", Bob Dorough's "Five Definitions of Love", and numerous standards and popular songs. There are also several alternate takes (and/or master takes) to four selections that were included on "Breathless". While most of the selections are relatively brief due to the format of the 15 minute recruitment shows, the music does not suffer and this material is very enjoyable to listen to.
