Vocalist Jessica Molaskey managed to parlay an extremely successful career in musical theater into an equally successful career as a recording artist. Often accompanied by her husband, guitarist John Pizzarelli (a successful recording artist in his own right), Molaskey favors hip, jazzy treatments of standards and gems from the American songbook, an inclination continued on 2008's A KISS TO BUILD A DREAM ON. John and Bucky Pizzarelli guest on guitar, and Martin Pizzarelli plays bass and Aaron Weinstein plays violin. The song selections include "Tea for Two," "You're Nobody Til Somebody Loves You," and "Ain't Misbehavin'."
JazzTimes (p.99) - "Molaskey again proves herself that rarest of commodities: a singing actress who can fully transport her stage skills to the recording studio, transforming each selection into a multihued mini-play."
