All the songs are sung by Coupe who has a subtle and distinct voice. Coupe also plays her trumpet which she is renowned for through out her 35 year career in the jazz world.
This album “Every Little Thing Counts” (which is the 3rd track on the album) is unique in many ways.

All of Coupe’s songs are deep and meaningful which makes this album exciting and profound.
