Nikka draw


AS YOU would expect from the daughter of Don Costa, a man frequently behind the production desk for legends such as Sammy Davis Jnr and Frank Sinatra, Nikka Costa's work is characteristically slick.
Mixing funky, soulful stompers with bluesy ballads, her seventh album Pebble To A Pearl is the sound of someone who knows their way around a studio going about their business.
Ms Costa possesses a fist of a voice, at times remiscent of Anastacia, and these tracks are a great vehicle for it, especially when the funk factor is wound up, such as on the title track.
Slick and soulful, Pebble To A Pearl is a bit of a gem.
