    Wesla Whitfield has long had one of the most beautiful voices in jazz and cabaret music. She usually sticks to the lyrics and melodies, but even when a tune has been recorded scores of times through the years, her version tends to be definitive and full of unexpected beauty. Accompanied on this outing by her husband, pianist Mike Greensill, and bassist John Wiitala, Whitfield performs 15 ballads, mostly at slower tempos with a couple songs taken at a faster pace for variety. Among the many high points are fresh renditions of "Tea for Two," "Autumn in New York," "Wrap Your Troubles in Dreams," "But Beautiful," and "Some Other Time." All of Wesla Whitfield's recordings are recommended, and In My Life is an excellent place to start exploring her music. ~ Scott Yanow
