O’s Notes: Natalia has a great voice that is well suited for jazz, blues, contemporary pop, soul or just swinging and having a great time. She also plays guitar, composed and produced Bluezzin T’il Dawn. This is her rebirth of sorts after a 7-year hiatus. She is packed with passion and delivers a riveting performance. There is great sax from Xavier Sibre on King’s remake of the classic “Don’t Explain”, the lone cover in the set. “Insatiable” reminded us of Natalie Cole’s “Unforgettable” but with more gut wrenching blues. And there are more soulful blues on “Love You Madly” and “Paint It Black & Blue”. King strikes gold with lovers of classic southern blues at a premium level!
