Sarah McKenzie's 'Secrets of My Heart' reunites SM with Australian composer/arranger/MD Chong Lim, who produced her first two discs. Recorded in New York City, Secrets of My Heart exudes cosmopolitan flair with its lineup that includes French bassist Pierre Boussaguet and Brazilian percussionist Rogerio Bocattoalongside guitarist Dan Wilson, drummer Donald Edwards, vibraphonist Warren Wolf,tenor saxophonist Troy Roberts, and cellist Jody Redhage Ferber(all of whom based in the United States). McKenzie penned the lion's share of Secrets of My Heart's 12 songs, sterling compositions that will surely become jazz standards in the 21st century.
