"Her loving vocals soar above the clouds on the beautiful ballad "Just You" and she gives "Betcha By Golly Wow" a slight makeover, turning the this soulful classic into a modern jazz standard."
"After a decade away, the hands down award winner is back with a set that refashions old tunes through the lens of the grief and loss she's gone through while she's been away from us. You want a sample? Dionne Warwick never took Bacharach/David to church like this! Especially on a signature song.
