    I saw this group ~3 years ago & got my mind truly blown. Cyrille Aimee's vocals are amazing, and the guitarist is one of the greatest manouche/Django-style guitarists working today. Cyrille Aimee loves to sing Sondheim tunes, and here it's easy to see why:

    Calamity Jane is one year younger than I am, and it is my tradition to make it my first-play for any new audio kit. Wonderful songs, wonderful voice.

    It seems that she had a rather sad personal life. Spent her last years looking after rescue animals, all of which probably treated her better than her husbands did.

    RIP, Doris Day. Thanks for that beautiful voice.

    "If that makes you crazy, you're a psychopath" (these lyrics just kill me)

    Great tune...

    Thanks for an inspiring post. Queen Dinah is right. So is Queen Bessie.

    Here's a singer I've always loved, New Orleans' finest, Irma Thomas. She can certainly be a shouter, but IMO she's at her best singing softly. She absolutely caresses this soul ballad, "I Need Your Love so Bad"
