CD: May I Come In?
Review by George Fendel
Maybe a few of you remember a very talented, generally unheralded singer named Ethel Ennis. Well, Gail Pettis reminded me a bit of Ms. Ennis, and that’s to say, she’s very good and sings effortlessly and with no “frosting.” Great tunes here like Black Coffee, Desafinado, Show Me and lots more. Ms. Pettis’ trio accompaniment includes Randy Halberstadt and former Portlander Darin Clendenin, both of whom are classy piano practitioners.
