One of the most powerful (yet capable of immense subtlety) voices I’ve come across of late. This album is exceptional in the choice of material, superbly recorded (not over-produced) and last, but not least, backed by a very strong lineup of musicians including Tommy Sancton and Lars Edegran — and that’s class that really does shine through. Yes, Denise Gordon is without doubt an honorary New Orleanian. Thank goodness she left accountancy behind! Check out her YouTube channel and see just how strong and versatile she is.
