Lazy & Mellow ***
SASHAYING along somewhere between folk, jazz and acoustic pop, velvet-voiced Edinburgh singer-songwriter Rosie Nimmo, after paying her dues as a jazz and blues singer on the pub, club and festival scene over the years, has released a debut disc which indeed justifies its name, the title track itself floating in a limpid drift.
There are one or two weaker numbers and the rhythm guitar work can sound rather functional at times, but the opening track, Spider and Fly, engages right away, as does Dangerous, while Pavlov's Dog swings along nicely. Darker-toned are More, a bluesy shuffle laced with Marc Pilley's waspish electric guitar, and Nothing to Fear, which stalks along to an edgy tango rhythm over Mairi Campbell's fiddle.
