Product Notes

These days, when every female vocalist seems to be vying for Koko Taylor's throne, what a delight it is to hear a beautiful, natural voice. Adrianna Marie sings without affectation but with all the expressiveness, sass, and class of stylists like Dinah Washington, Little Esther, and Helen Humes. From the rocking R&B of Esther's "Cherry Wine" to a lowdown treatment of Humes's "I Ain't In The Mood," she is splendid. In front of the spectacular, big band version of Louis Jordan's swinging, minor "Is You Is Or Is You Ain't My Baby," or the reading of Billie Holiday's jazzy "Sugar," Adrianna Marie is pure sophistication. In duets with Jones-on Big Maybelle's "That's A Pretty Good Love" and on the lovely ballad, originally by Johnny Otis and Little Esther, that gives Double Crossing Blues it's title--she is by turns steamy and reserved. In every setting and mood, Adrianna Marie and the Groovecutters, who provide expert ensemble work and memorable solos, and step out on their own on Freddy King's "Sad Night Owl," are picture-perfect.
