Smooth jazz from Jackie Allen

It’s not a new album – it came out in 2003 – but “The Men in My Life,” from Jackie Allen, is a real pleasure.

From her mellow version of Paul Simon’s “Still Crazy [After All These Years],” to a sultry rendition of Herb Alpert’s “This Guy’s In Love With You,” to a playful “Mexico” from James Taylor to an upbeat take on Ray Charles’ “One Mint Julep,” this is a disc that pleases, and surprises, in its range and depth.
