O’s Notes: This is an anthology of work covering nearly two decades for Chicago based Janice Misurell-Mitchell. It is quite an unusual presentation as Janice recites poetry, sings, plays her flute and vocalizes thru her flute to add character to her music. This is a different form of blues marrying various techniques to arrive at a unique presentation. Misurell-Mitchell is a vibrant and courageous performer that is dynamic and at time startling. The set includes a couple of live recordings notably “Are You Ready” a magical vocal solo.
