Savant, 2002, CD
Instrument: Female Vocals
Jazz Ruler Type: Ballads, Blues
O’s Notes: Irene’s magic is in the lyrics; some humor, some blues, some pride and a large dose of reality. Her voice is close to spoken word with expression matching the mood of the message. She tells it like it is – “One Monkey Don’t Stop No Show”, “I’m Gettin’ Tired” and our favorite, “Time’s Getting Tougher Than Tough” – keeping it real!
