She also has explored the solo piano format on 2009's Place To Be and on her new album, the aptly titled Spectrum. The program includes original compositions, such as "Whiteout," as well as a version of The Beatles' "Blackbird" and an imaginative medley that melds George Gershwin's "Rhapsody In Blue" with John Coltrane's "Blue Train" and The Who's "Behind Blue Eyes."
