She is my musical sweetheart. A spectacular vocal stylist and great piano chops to boot. They are so proud of her in the small town of Nanimo on Vancouver Island Canada where she grew up that the townsfolk who greet the cruise ships point out that she was born there right after saying "welcome to Nanimo".
2 more fans here: my best half and myself. We already have seats for her tour stop here in Switzerland in November.
Never heard her play that tune before. The tribute to the great OP is so obvious here.
Her blues playing is so funky and crunchy, someone mentioned Gene Harris, she is amazing.
Thanks for that link.
She's amy zing, I thought she was German for a long time as she's very popular in Germany and often featured on German TV Jazz programs.
Fave Album has to be "Live in Paris", there's tracks on there that are just too beautiful for words - my fave track: her rendition of Billy Joel's "Just the way you are" with Mike Brecker doing a couple of really beautiful melodic solos. And what a lovely lady she is.
