One of two back to back sessions recorded at the Timucua White House in Orlando, FL in 2011, So In Love features Ashley's vocals and my arrangements of jazz and pop standards.

Liner Notes from Benoit Glazer:

The musical conversations heard on this CD are unique in that not one person ever raised their voice, so to speak. Every note, every nuance is absolutely and completely tastefully done, and even in solos, one never gets the feeling that anybody had a need to assert, or force their idea through the group. Simply gorgeous and seamless fluid sounds make up these spontaneous and creative arrangements that can only come out of openness and deep love for one another.

Chris' restrained creative power is in full bloom here, with not a wasted note, and magical piano voicings throughout. Chuck's deep bass sound is matched only by his freedom to explore and gently guide the group into flowing sheets of simple and unique beauty. Keith's cymbal work on some of these songs is simply the most exquisite heard anywhere, ever. And Ashley delivered a stunning and intimate performance that is so personal and completely involved that the listener is drawn into each song as if it was never intended to be sung by and for anyone else.

This collection of songs does not constitute the backdrop for a quiet romantic conversation, it transcends and eliminates the need for words altogether.
