Corn Hill, 2005, CD
Instrument: Female Vocals
Jazz Ruler Type: Ballads, Blues
O’s Notes: Katie is a true jazz singer, scatting and bending the notes hither and yon while maintaining tonality. Her phrasing is fresh and unique. Listen to her arrangement of “My Favorite Things” and you’ll appreciate her personalization of the tune. She has chosen two trios for Love Spook and both are excellent. Drummer Matt Wilson and Bull are common elements. The other musicians are Frank Kimbrough (p), Martin Wind (b), Michael Jefry Stevens (p) and Joe Fonda (b). We found this to be an enjoyable listening experience.
