East West

The British chanteuse’s fifth album is more starkly produced than previous outings, putting the spotlight squarely on her smoky soprano. Julia Fordham shines on the unabashedly romantic ”I Want to Call You Baby,” and ”More Than I Can Bear” has the airiness of early Joni Mitchell. Lest things get too sleepy, she cuts loose on ”Wishing You Well,” displaying an emotional range that makes East West a chilling tour de force. B+
