O’s Notes: Antoinette is a storyteller, well suited for singing the blues. Her voice is soft yet powerful. The band behind her includes a wealth of talent with bassist Peter Washington, Kenny Washington (d), Mulgrew Miller (p) and Bill Easley (sax). But the beauty of this recording lies in Antoinette’s jazzy blues arrangements of classic R&B numbers like “What’s Going On” and “Get Ready”. Montague does well with these as well as more classic jazz tunes notably “I’d Rather Have a Memory”. We also enjoyed the title track, the lone original with a strong solo from Easley.
