Review

According to Athens of the North's useful liner notes, Penny Goodwin is Milwaukee's "unsung queen of jazz". Accompanied by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, she recorded her one and only album, Portrait of a Gemini, in 1974. Since then it's become something of an in-demand item, hence this timely CD reissue from Euan Fryer's laudable imprint. It features a mix of original songs and covers - including a fiendishly up-tempo jazz interpretation of Marvin Gaye's "What's Going On" - with Goodwin's impeccable, emotion-rich voice coming to the fore. Musically, there are as many nods to conscious soul and Hammond-heavy funk as classic jazz, but that's no doubt part of the album's enduring appeal.
