Ramona Borthwick,
A New Leaf
(Whaling City, 2006)

Steeped in music from childhood and drawing together influences from three continents, Ramona Borthwick brings us a distillation of the best in easy-on-the-ear jazz.

Born in Bombay, she lived and studied in London and currently resides in Boston.

This cross-fertilization of Asia, Europe and America makes for an eclectic mix in instrumental and vocal performances. This is a "sit back and let it flow over you" album rather than a collection of potential hit singles.

So sit down, draw the shades, relax and turn on A New Leaf.
