O’s Notes: LaVerne has warm soulful vocals that fit well with this program of jazzy blues. She touches highs and lows of relationships with an upbeat spirit that resonates with her band. Pianist Bruce Barth directs the team that includes bassist Ugonna Okegwo and Rudy Royston on drums. Guest artist Houston Person provides buttery smooth sax shadowing Butler on several tunes. LaVerne started in New Orleans, then Moved to New York then performed around the world. She has continued to evolve and her experience as an entertainer is appreciated here.
