If you haven't heard of pianist Jeremy Monteiro, it's because he usually plays halfway around the world in Singapore. But for this album, Monterio was in Chicago to play and pay tribute to The Carpenters. Apparently, Monteiro was heavily influenced by The Carpenters growing up and was deeply affected by Karen Carpenter's young death. He and producer Winston Ma put together a group to do a tribute album in a jazz setting to the popular duo. Monteiro enlisted soft-spoken and silky-voiced Singapore singer Jacintha to do justice to Karen's vocals, and she does sing nicely on tunes like "Masquerade" and "I Won't Last a Day Without You".
