About this Article

This collection ("Blossom") of James Taylor and Carole King songs marks Amanda Brecker's U.S. recording debut, but the singer has a rich musical pedigree. Her background gives her the confidence to perform classic songs like "So Far Away," "Something in the Way He Moves" and "Sweet Baby James" in a relaxed, respectful manner -- with a few jazzy embellishments.
