Genre: Jazz
FCCs: none
Review: yes, THAT Chrissie Hynde, vocalist for the Pretenders, fronting a jazz band & ripping up some old jazz and rock standards, putting her own unique cool on each. This could be the alt American Songbook. And check out her artwork in the sleeve.
If You Like: Lena Horne, Diana Krall
