It makes sense that Sylvie LewisÆ music projects continental qualities. Born and raised in Great Britain she has lived in America Switzerland Spain and currently resides in Italy. Listening to her music itÆs easy to imagine her singing in a stylish caf' society nightclub on either side of the Atlantic. ThereÆs also a timelessness to her cabaret-style jazz that makes it sound like it could have existed anytime between the Æ30s to the present. She starts off her sophomore outing with the snappily paced StarsongàWhat Became of Us one of several tunes that examines a love affair that didnÆt end well. Lewis then slows down the pace with the melancholic Happy Like That. On this Roches-recalling tune she namedrops Jobim and Johnny Cash while telling off an unsatisfying boyfriend (You flirt like a married man/The way you do it only the married can.). Her songs are populated with a number of winning bon mots. In Say in Touch she describes a manÆs relationship with his mistress by saying that He reads her like scriptures/Reads her like Braille. Later in the Bacharach-ish portrait of a carefree gal pal Cheap AinÆt Free she slips in the wonderfully colorful line: We treat a broken heart parking ticket style/Once youÆve got one you canÆt get another for a little while. Collaborating again with Los Angeles-based chamber pop-ster Richard Swift Lewis nicely creates a lush musical setting for her tunes without making it overly fussy. A tango beat enlivens Old Queens Monet and Me while keyboards and synthesizers combine with a percussive beat to underscore the uneasy tension on Your Voice Carries. Two other tunes that are definitely worth noting show up back to back midway through the disc: Just You and Of Course Isabelle. The former is a gorgeous optimistic love ode something of a rarity for this disc. On the latter Lewis assumes the voice of both a philandering man and his mistress Isabelle. This sophisticated look at an affair gone stale wouldnÆt feel out of place on a Broadway stage. Sophisticated in fact is a good word to use to describe Lewis. Her music and lyrics hold a charming sophistication but she also instills them with a liveliness that circumvents the tunes from turning stodgy and old-fashioned. Translations builds impressively upon her striking debut Tangos and Tantrums. ~ Michael Berick
