Harlemwood, 2002, CD
Instrument: Female Vocals
Jazz Ruler Type: Ballads, Blues
O’s Notes: Lainie breathes lots of life through these dozen classic jazz ballads. Along with the title track, there’s “Close Your Eyes”, an upbeat arrangement of “Let’s Do It” and “Bye Bye Black Bird”. The surrounding trio (quartet on track 10) is solid as a rock allowing Cooke to fully express her celebration.
