Songs on the album range from the funky, upbeat Mojo, to the re-imagined and jazz reharmonised Eleanor Rigby and Big Yellow Taxi; from the soulful anthem on mindfulness, Just Breathe, to the Celtic sound of Grass Is Always Greener; Ingrid's Song is wonderfully lyrical and gentle while the dynamic instrumentals Sarah's Hour and Together burst through like sparkling spritzers on a hot summer's day. Lots of variety but all containing Hilary Burt's hallmark sound.
