O’s Notes: The band opens playing a ragtime beat before Dawn adds the words to “Let’s Get Lost”. Lambeth focuses on music from the 1920s-1940s. Her vocal characteristics are perfect for this material and easy to warm up to. The lyrics are well articulated with an easy-going pace on “Beginner’s Luck”. She shares the stage with her band, a talented crew including Bob Reitmeier (cl), John Reynolds (g, banjo, whistling), John Smith (sax), Marc Caparone (cornet, b), Dave Caparone (tb), Clint Baker (g, b) and Chris Dawson (p). So if you want to take a ride back to the swing era with some Dixieland thrown in, this is your ticket. But the sound quality is 21st century making for a real treat.
