For her first solo disc in seven years Audra McDonald gives us the most beautiful recordings of her career.  Filled with dazzling songs by everyone from Kander & Ebb to Sondheim to Guettel to Rodgers & Hammerstein to Gwon to Heisler & Goldrich, McDonald’s lustrous voice sounds ravishing.  The title track, in particular, from the brilliant Scottsboro Boys is a revelation in McDonald’s peerless hands.  (Nonesuch Records)
