Review

Review Text The sole LP ever recorded by Los Angeles nightclub singer Flo Bennett, Half Past Lonely belies its low-budget, do-it-yourself origins -- although Bennett funded and produced the session herself, she managed to reel in the likes of arranger Ernie Freeman, tenor saxophonist Plas Johnson, trumpeter John Anderson, and guitarist Irving Ashby to lend the record the sophistication and depth comparable to a major-label release. What further distinguishes the album is the quality and consistency of the tunes: Bennett (a first-call demo singer) called on her songwriter friends to compose original material for the session, and melancholy contributions like "Laugh at Me," "Never Been So Lost," and the title cut perfectly complement her emotional, world-weary vocals. Reissued on CD in 2008 as part of the Sinatra Society of Japan's One Shot Wonders series. ~ Jason Ankeny
