No Strings

Lead Performer: Sheena Easton

Why would a popster do a lushly arranged album of standards that were written before she was born? Why not? Everybody’s doin’ it, and Sheena Easton fares a lot better than, say, Sinéad O’Connor when digging into the timeless/timely ore of ”Body and Soul” and ”Someone to Watch Over Me.” Keyboardist-producer Patrice Rushen’s comfortable, if not very adventurous, arrangements range from small jazz combos to everything-but-strings big-band ensembles. And with No Strings, Easton proves to be a warm, assured stylist, whose affection for these American classics is infectious. B
