Vocalist Sachal Vasandani and his friend/pianist Romain Collin team up for this sparse and subdued album that delivers incredibly well. On this album, Sachal has moved away from his more jazz-centric vocals of past albums and here concentrates more on a stripped-down presentation that’s more pop focused featuring covers from artists such as Nick Drake, Bob Dylan and The Beatles. Vocal delivery is straightforward in the vein of someone like Kurt Elling and the piano accompanies with a light touch that is the ideal compliment to these minimal arrangements. Warmth, body and intimacy are the sonic hallmarks of this excellent recording. Available for streaming on TIDAL or in 24/96 FLAC from ProStudioMasters.
