The melodic originals of Seattle pianist Nelda Swiggett draw from her long list of influences, from jazz to Afro-Cuban, to gospel, classical and more.
... a bright palette, a sinewy execution and a powerful, assertive command.
... the sound is all Swiggett's: refined and confident, open and inviting.
