Leni Stern introduces us to her singing on Black Guitar. Vocally she's unimpressive, but this has more to do with the trite lyrics than her delivery, which is sufficiently expressive. For most of the CD an enjoyable looped Strat instrumental follows each cut with vocals. In these instrumental melodies her real voice comes through. Her light jazz leads are separately nicely from the deep and busy bass from Tim Lefebvre. The result is a song full of breadth and structure while still putting forth a face of her stylized delicacy. I recommend any fan of relaxed guitar jazz to get into the heart of this disc as the weakest material is concentrated in the first few tracks. Production, lap steel and vocal support are from Larry John McNally (Bonnie Raitt). ~ Tom Schulte
