Original Woman, 2004, CD
Instrument: Female Vocals
Jazz Ruler Type: Ballads, Blues
O’s Notes: It only takes a few seconds to capture the essence of Judy’s program. These are heart felt, soulful ballads. The band is fully supportive with a minimalist approach. Misha Piatigorsky (p), Steve Doyle (b) and Greg Searvance (d) play tight supportive rhythms. They leave enough space for you to fully comprehend the tones and coloration of the instruments and more importantly, Bady’s voice. Judy is expressive whether singing, scatting, snickering or humming, you’ll feel the spirit of the song. Pure and simply delightful is how we’d describe Blackbird. Pick up a copy.
