Album Review
The Byrd of Paradise
Reviewed 2006-05-13 
The reigning queen of New Orleans soul - since the 1960s. She lost everything to Katrina. This is her first record since - strong, powerful blues, sould, and the best ballads.

1. Soft, sweet, laid back ballad
2. Swampy blues march - tuff fiddle
3. Poppy, midtempo ballad - Irma, back-up vocals, stand-up bass
4. old time blues standard. Strong vocal rendition - it rings true
5. Churchy/soulful bouncin' cover of Nina Simone classic
6. Powerful ballad
7. Old time blues standard: redone for Katrina's aftermath
8. Easy rockin' soul ballad
9. Swingin' cha cha bounce - of true women's liberation
10. Easy bouncin' ballad - sweet fiddle
11. Oldtime blues march - redone very well
12. Tuff walkin' soul strut. Talkin' 'bout real life
13. Queen of the ballads
