Ruby

If Datri Bean's Ruby looks like yet another album from a female singer-songwriter, consider this: Bean accompanies herself with pump organ and ukulele. She also plays piano and sings quite well, but it's her cabaret style of jazzy originals that makes Ruby a gem ("Green Onions," "My Neighbor Willie," "Mockingbird"). Expert production by Andre Moran and backup from Matt the Electrician land Bean's effort high on the watch-this list. **.5
