What Is Enough?

Kevyn Lettau and Peter Sprague have played prominent parts in the San Diego jazz scene for several years. Though Lettau has relocated to Los Angeles, she and Sprague have continued a musical relationship.

What Is Enough? is a duet album featuring Sprague's acoustic-steel and nylon-string guitars playing off of Lettau's soulful, sultry vocals. While the guitar-voice duo format may seem limited, these two have the chops and the experience to engage and entertain.

Anyone familiar with the duo’s work will be expecting Brazilian grooves, and they won't be disappointed. For this listener, however, it’s the way they reinvigorate the standards that elevates What Is Enough? to a must-have session. Their version of "Almost Like Being in Love" swings harder than a horse thief! "You Don't Know What Love Is" aches from loss. Jobim's wordy "Waters of March" is always tricky, but in their hands, it’s seamless.

A highlight is the treatment of Bill Cantos’s "Sunlight." This song fits Lettau’s stylish voice like a glove, and she must know that as it has appeared before on her album Simple Life. One minor flaw: not sure that "Have a Talk With God" was the right Stevie Wonder tune for the two to cover, but What Is Enough? is enough to enthusiastically recommend the record.
