We gave it a B+

If you like Diana Krall but wish she were, you know, grungier, Mandell’s your girl. L.A.’s indie-rock queen follows 2003’s country CD with a charming leap — the length of a six-song EP — into vocal jazz. Key aptitude test: Only a credit check establishes that witty original ”Better When You’re Near” doesn’t carbon-date to the same era as set-closer ”I’m Through With Love.”
