Equally versed in jazz, blues, and soul, Washington recalls the spirit of the classic jazz divas while putting her own stamp on material ranging from Etta James to Norah Jones. With nine CDs out, this is a savvy veteran who knows how to sell a song with grace, passion, and authority. Karel Roessingh piano, Joey Smith bass, Damian Graham drums, Bryn Badel trumpet
