5.0 out of 5 stars Loved It, 23 Sep 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Simply Grand (Audio CD)
Loved it. Boy what a voice this lady has. I got some old stuff by Irma but not bought anything for a while so this was new ground for me but worth every penny. She works here with 12 different pianists and its all acoustic. It really works and there is a good mix of old and new sounds, with the timeless and seemingly effortless voice gluing it all together. I am not ashamed to say that "What Can i Do" made me cry.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Grand!, 17 Dec 2008
This review is from: Simply Grand (Audio CD)
The renaissance of the New Orleans Soul Queen continues with this uplifting, moving album. In the wake of Hurricane Katrina, Irma's house was destroyed and she was presumed dead. Thankfully she made it through and has come back stronger than ever with 2006's After The Rain and now the aptly titled Simply Grand. It's a simple concept - Irma's majestic voice is backed by a series of pianists on some wonderful songs. Standards such as 'I Think Its Going To Rain Today' and 'This Bitter Earth' sit easily alongside new songs like Bacharach's 'What Can I Do' and the overall effect is an appreciation of an indomitable lady and an indestructible city.
