LucySmith, 2006, CD
Instrument: Female Vocals
Jazz Ruler Type: Ballads, Blues
O’s Notes: Lucy’s got a powerful rich voice, no doubt. She is singing with a confidence that makes us anxious to listen. It is an appealing signature placed over tight R&B on natural instruments. Smith sings a mix of freshened covers and originals. There’s both soul and gospel on “Go Down Moses” with a solo from Greg Ward (sax). We also liked “Passing For Normal” and “I Ain’t Got Nothin’ But the Blues”. This is a voice to be reckoned with!
