It Had Better Be Tonight

Cheryl tears down the wall that separates jazz and pop with the release of her second album It Had Better Be Tonight.


Liberating listeners from bourgeois ballads, It Had Better Be Tonight is musical manifesto that upholds the tenets of Henry Mancini, Leiber and Stoller, Sammy Cahn and Burton Lane.


Cheryl marshals the sonic charge flanked by a five piece horn squadron, powerful rhythm section and high flying vibes. The album unloads its hard swinging payload on such tunes as the urban soundscape blast of Big City, the post-apocalyptic fantasy of 13 Men and the Rat Pack reminiscent rave-up Please Don’t Talk about Me When I’m Gone.
