"This is truly one of my favourite CDs. Lee, who is one of the divas of Australian jazz, first performed at the Glenelg Jazz Festival in 1998 when I was running the Festival. I bought both CDs, and also had the privilege of getting to know Lee.
Her performances were truly moving, possessed as she is of an extraordinary deep, resonant and amazingly soulful voice - a surprise to many when they see she is a blonde blue eyed Aussie!
She can really sing the blues, as many in New Orleans discovered 10 or so years ago when she first performed there to great and deserved acclaim.
The entire album is engaging for anyone who likes traditional New Orleans jazz - and I do!! The tracks that I particularly like are I've Got What It Takes, Sugar Blues and There'll Be Some Change Made. But, quite frankly there isn't a track on it that I don't like.
My advice - get it - put it on - and you will find yourself putting it on again and again and again. I did - and still do!"
