Singer, songwriter and guitarist Machan is just the latest in an apparent line of contemporary jazz performers who are being afforded a showcase by the excellent NuGroove label. The album ‘Motion Of Love’, which was released late in 2007, is her second solo project and is a fine blend of adult contemporary and smooth jazz rhythms. It represents a further milestone in an evolving solo career and cements her reputation as an accomplished professional that was gained by virtue of extended stints as a backing singer for luminaries such as Sting, Aretha Franklin, George Benson, Hiroshima and Pink Floyd. Machan writes all but one of the ten songs on ‘Motion Of Love’. The only cover is her version of Government Mule’s ‘Beautifully Broken’ which was co-written by her husband Danny Louis and is indicative of the mellifluous vibe that pulses right through the entire album.
