"From the most gentle and sweet to elemental growls that tear at the core of being. The Earth is in her voice." - Palm Beach Daily News. After years of presenting the classic jazz songbook through her tours and recordings, the Vancouver-based vocalist journeys back to pull out songs from her youth as a R&B, pop and gospel singer that resonated with her. Interwoven with the musical threads of jazz are arrangements that are fresh, hard-grooving and engaging to the ear and the memory, including songs such as Fire & Rain, Respect, Our Day Will Come and What A Fool Believes. "Classy, bluesy, great musicianship, elegant and more...the jazz world's hidden treasure." - Houston Person.
