Review: Vocalist Swift possesses the cool confidence of a seasoned performer. Elegant onstage, the up-and-coming vocalist can slide seamlessly from a difficult syncopated rhythm to a wistful love song to a fresh arrangement of an old standard. Backed by two of the best pianists on the planet and a stellar band.
