Janis Siegel remains one of the finest jazz vocalists in contemporary jazz, and her recordings are always enjoyable and imaginative. With the release of FRIDAY NIGHT SPECIAL, she once again brings her bright, enduring vitality to share with the jazz listening audience.
There are 10 selections on this fine CD. Among them are "My, How The Time Goes By," "I Just Dropped By To Say Hello," "Let It Be Me," "Ill Wind," "You Don"t Know Me," and "There's A Small Hotel." Her rendition of "Misty" is a showstopper, perfect in every way.
Joey De Francesco performs on the Hammond B3 and as always is the master musician of that instrument. The musicians are topnotch.
Excellent and enjoyable. This is Janis Siegel at her best.
