Title - 'Bewitched (Not Bothered, Not Bewildered)'
Artist - Suzanna Ross

For those not in the know, Suzanna Ross sings in New York City at jazz and cabaret venues. Indeed, she has performed in NYC at many venues, including the Metropolitan Room, Don't Tell Mama, Triad Theater, Pangea, TOMI Jazz, and for the Jazz Series at the Jamaica Center for Arts and Learning.

Suzanna sings a wide range of music from jazz, French chansons, pop, to movie songs and Bossa Nova and has also sung at New Jersey's famed jazz club, Trumpets.

Her brand new album, Bewitched (Not Bothered, Not Bewildered) came out in December 2019 and is an enthralling collection of all those aforementioned musical genres and more.

1. 'Havenít We Met'
2. 'Bewitched'
3. 'Dreamer'
4. 'Ces petits riens'
5. 'Mr. Wonderful'
6. 'Summer Me, Winter Me'
7. 'Parlez moi de lui'
8. 'My Favorite Things'
9. 'Laura'
10. 'For Me Formidable'
11. 'Come to Baby, Do!'
12. 'Over the Rainbow'
13. 'Boomerang Baby'
14. 'Thereís a Kind of Hush'
15. 'Live for Life'

From the American, French, and British songbooks, melodies and lyrics from some of the best songwriters throughout the decades - classic and new - Suzanna first brings us the gentle hipsway of 'Haven't We Met' and backs that up seamlessly with the gentle finger-snappin' title track, the laid back flow of 'Dreamer,' and then both the French-sung 'Ces petits riens' and the quietly related 'Mr. Wonderful.'

The heat gets turned up a wee bit for the one-two jazz punch of 'Summer Me, Winter Me' which is followed by another French-sung ballad in 'Parlez moi de lui,' and then the Christmas bounce and sway of 'My Favorite Things.'

The piano-led beauty 'Laura' (a theme song from the 1944 film noir) is also one of my personal favorites and that's then backed by the late night, smoky club vibe of 'For Me Formidable,' and then the foot-tappin' jaunt 'Come to Baby, Do!'

This quite delightful, fresh and breezy new album then rounds out with a heart-rendering 'Over the Rainbow,' the upright bass-backed 'Boomerang Baby,' and then comes to a close with the pop elegance of 'Thereís a Kind of Hush,' and then finally the lush ballad 'Live for Life.'
