From the opening selection, Irving Berlin’s “Blue Skies” with an acid jazz feel, to Latz‘ offbeat and eccentric title track “Fig Tree,” to a beautiful and haunting piano duet on Mercer and Mancini’s, “Moon River,” Deborah Latz‘ third CD, Fig Tree, is a breakout performance, proving her artistic mastery as vocalist, songwriter and arranger.
