4.0 out of 5 stars jazz 27 May 2013
Format:MP3 Download
This is a worthwhile purchase. To use the old cliche, she could sing the phone book. I hadn't heard any of this stuff before but was pleasantly surprised. Its not up to the standard of her material for Atlantic but it is pretty good. More jazz based than soul but a worthwhile purchase.
