Jollie Mollie, 2017, CD
Instrument: Female Vocals
Jazz Ruler Type: Ballads, Blues
O’s Notes: Ladies Day“is an all women encounter sparked by vocalist MJ Territo’s recognition of the wealth of great songs composed by women. Women are not only great writers but also great musicians as represented here by a strong band that includes pianist Linda Presgrave, bassist Iris Ornig and Barbara Merjan on drums with guest artists Virginia Mayhew (sax) on “Strange Fascination” and Andrea Brachfeld (fl) for two selections. MJ’s style is well articulated, more spoken than melodic at times but she shines with her accompaniment on “You Gotta Pay The Band” and the bluesy “It’s Cool To Be Cool”.
