  2. A classic! Unfortunately - as so often - damn copyright issues mean I can't access this version from Germany :-(

  3. This is lovely - I really like her early work much more than her later stuff, primarily because I prefer the club-combo sound to the more heavily produced big band fare. The smaller groups both contributed the virtuosity of her compatriots and gave her room to play, which was her real forte.

    Thanks for the [now Sunday morning] smile.

"When the Amherst sphinx styled herself a pagan, she meant she didn’t believe in the biblical God. What sort of deity, if any, she did believe in is hard to pinpoint."
