"Just heard 'Be Baba Le Ba' on KFJC 87.9FM Los Altos Hills CA. Blew me away! her strident, supple vocal style is remnescent of Esther Philips,Billie Holliday,and Macie Gray. It's hard to believe this cut was recorded 1950! (@ Shine Auditorium before a wildly enthusiastic audience) There's a sophisticated jazz band behind her, so the jump jive arrangements have seem contemporary. Lots of modern blues wannabe's should note the spontaneous but carefully controlled vocal/instrumental interplay."
