Creeper Music, 2015, CD
Instrument: Female Vocals
Jazz Ruler Type: Ballads, Blues
O’s Notes: A few keys to success for a singer are (1) having a great band, (2) sharing the spotlight and (3) having an inviting voice. Michelle scores on all three! Her slightly veiled, soft, warm tone is easy to embrace. Larry McKenna shadows her on sax while also taking several lengthy, well-developed solos. This is also the case with Tom Lawton (p), Madison Rast (b), Dan Monaghan (d) and producer Orrin Evans (p). It’s a great mix of vocal and instrumental features within each song. The performance remains scintillating either way.
