  • DescriptionOn Everlasting, Rachel has her way with a bevy of pop and rock stars. She puts a surging, McCoy Tyner-ish spin on the George Harrison anthem “Here Comes The Sun” then turns in an uncommonly delicate rendition of Seal’s “Kissed By A Rose.” Bobbie Rae’s “Mortal” taps right into that strain of translucent Keith-Chick-Herbie pianism that was so vital for a generation of players coming of age in the ‘70s and ‘80s while her light, lyrical and eminently swinging rendition of “Ring of Fire” is radically recast from Johnny Cash’s gritty original. She plumbs the emotional depths of the Stones’ melancholy ballad “Wild Horses” while transforming Soundgarden’s “Black Hole Sun” into an uptempo swinging romp (dig Tony’s walking bassline against Bobby’s hip, interactive pulse), then underscores Sting’s poignant “Fields of Gold” with rare eloquence and melodicism.
