For Diana & Cassandra fans


Seems like Valerie Joyce could become a favorite on this site with this release on Chesky Records.

No affiliation here. I just thought some of you might be lulled by her voice.

Thanx for your hint.

I am not a Diana Krall fan, but I love Cassandra and Patricia Barber as well!

The Chesky website comparison to Cassandra Wilson is probably more accurate than my inclusion of Diana Krall. Sorry about that.
To go one further Lmikek,

I am not a fan of Diana or Patricia, but I love some of Cassandra's better work - Blue Light Til Dawn, Mew Moon Daughter, parts of Traveling Miles.

Don't know what's going on with the new one - Thunderbird. "Easy Rider" and "Poet" are killer tunes, but the rest is not up to that level. Keb Mo' crushes slide guitar on "Easy Rider", the sng simply kicks ass.
Wow, I just checked out the Valerie Joyce link - this woman's got pipes(and hot, too)!!
Also check out her(Cassandra, that is) collaboration with Jacky Terrasson on "Rendezvous". Gret recording, great stuff.
Yep, Rendezvous is great. But if you are into Jazz females, Shirley Horn is the outstanding singer of our age, head and shoulders, no question. This woman stands amongst Ella, Sarah and Billie and adds to that some of the best jazz piano around. If her sound had more of a modern edge to it she would be commercially a giant - instead she is merely artistically a giant.
Seems like an interesting recording. I'll check it out.
Thanks!!!!
