Review: McDougald is one of those jazz singers who actually believe in singing “out” with the voice, being herself instead of trying to sound like everyone else. She’s an aggressive singer who pushes the beat and her backup band is equally hot and hip, particularly soprano and alto saxist Dave Liebman, trumpeter Tom Harrell, & vibes player Mark Sherman, who attack their instruments with both musical invention and gusto.
