Colored Glasses ••• Carol Duboc

By Jean-Keith Fagon

The jazz singer-songwriter’s stories on Colored Glasses are honest and revealing. Top of the list is “Hypnotic,” an urban seducer about the intoxicating and blinding power of love. But love can and will hurt, sadly more often than not. Performers include Jeff Lorber, Hubert Laws, Jimmy Haslip, Vinnie Colaiuta, and Eric Marienthal. Other highlights are “Walking in My Sleep” and the title track “Colored Glasses.”
