Peggy WrightWithout You
There's a subtle elegance to Peggy Wright's debut, even if never fully materializing. The soft jazz horns of the opening title track set the pop-lite tone, and the arrangements glisten throughout. "Carry the Grief" adds raw emotional weight to the gentle poignancy of "Chinaberry Tree" and "Trouble Moving On," Cindy Cashdollar's steel ringing solemn. Wright doesn't push any limits, but Without You is better for it.
