This is a delightful recommendation - I have one of her albums in my collection, but haven't played it in a while. I will now after hearing this. Female jazz singers today are in in danger of being in over-supply. Yes, they're musically savvy, young, slick, photogenic and consequently highly marketable. However, so many lack the soulfulness of the likes of Peggy Lee, Julie London, "Sassy Sarah", "Lady Day", Patricia Barber, Norma Winstone, Cassandra Wilson and Astrud Gilberto as examples.
This lady has something a little different to offer and I'll listen to her more.
