Vocalist Jill Switzer and husband/pianist Rich Switzer (richandjill.net) are longtime staples of the Palm Beach jazz scene through their Switzer Trio, rounded out by various musicians at multiple venues. And Jill gets a huge assist from Rich on her new release “It’s You I Like,” since he also plays bass, trumpet, drums, trombone and saxophone.
It’s a collection of jazz standards; some corny (“You Make Me Feel So Young,” “Ain’t That a Kick in the Head”); some that click. Rich proves a capable one-man rhythm section on Cole Porter’s “Too Darn Hot.” Yet South Florida’s top session drummer, John Yarling, adds something extra to the title track and the George and Ira Gershwin chestnut “I’ve Got a Crush on You,” featuring Jill’s best vocal in a duet with Brian Eichenberger and supportive flugelhorn by Curtis Calderon.
