O’s Notes: Lainie is a happy singer and the super swinging quartet behind her boosts her enthusiasm. Pianist Ted Firth, Luques Curtis (b), Myron Walden (sax) and producer Ralph Peterson (d, t) are all-star musicians that not only provide a solid foundation but sparkle in the spotlight when called upon. You’d never guess that Cooke is 73 years old except for her incredible poise fortified by her decades of experience. She sings thirteen classics that take on new life and make The Music Is The Magic a warm program.
