Her new CD just arrived today, and I must say it is quite good. I give it a solid B.
If you like gospel, you'll probably give the album a B+ because most of the songs on it are spirituals. I particularly enjoyed the gospel medley.
The rest of the album is an eclectic mix of originals, folksy soul, and even a couple of rock covers. Many of the tracks have nice guest vocal touches. There is no traditional jazz song on the album. This is ok, because I don't believe it would fit well into the theme of the CD.
As good as she sounds on the album, she sounds even better live. I saw her a few months ago and she completely blew me away. She has an incredible presence too. Make sure to see her live when she is performing near you.
