Review: WOW! stellar jazz & blues vocalist and her versatile quintet smoke through several live tracks on 2 CDs, both old standards and newly-penned originals. There are a few ballads performed with strings, as well. I love the way she wraps her voice around these tunes and her innovative arrangements.
