Review: On her latest disc, singer Cervini is explores a world of music beyond jazz standards or applies new approaches to old tunes. The wide musical embrace demonstrated by Cervini on previous albums certainly informs this one, but a roots-and-rock through line and a pull-no-punches presentation separates it from the pack.
