The JazzXpress Caravan
April Dreams is a sultry album of original pop/jazz vocal compositions by Illinois-based singer Denise La Grassa. All of its songs, with the exception of one, were written by the multi-talented La Grassa and arranged by Matt Thompson, the ensemble's bassist. La Grassa's writing style is a direct reflection of the multitude of influences and inspirations that she draws upon as a performer. "Deep Down Love" is a great deep-grooving bluesy number that would make Leonard Cohen proud.
