Lisa Otey, vocal , piano; Jon Westfall, drums; plus many others including Heather Hardy, violin and Steve Grams, bass
Lisa has a strong set of pipes and plays adequate piano accompaniment to seven of her own songs and five others from the likes of Muddy Waters, Carla Brownlee and Ann Ronell.
The style of music varies from "Roadhouse Hurrah," "Country" to "Gospel" with a track of Salsa thrown in for good measure.
Undoubtedly a happy set of music-making, but not really concerned with Jazz.
