Was Just on the air with Larry Englund at KFAI 90.3 Minneapolis. He asked me a question that I did not answer clearly.
My new CD "When a Woman Loves a Man" was originally planned to coincide with my Concert Tribute to Nina Simone at the Capri Theater back in November 2011. The CD arrived later. Sanford Moore and I have had many discussions over the years about my musical style and came up with a few criteria for the CD so that it was true to who I am. The first was that the songs had to be theatrical in the sense that they told a story, created a picture. Several of the songsI have actually performed in theater productions, When a Woman Loves a Man, I wonder Where Our Love has Gone, and Moonlight are from, "Lady Day at Emerson's Bar and Grill."
I love to sing the intro of a song. Commonly recorded tunes would include the intro e.g. My Funny Valentine and Something to Live For. At least two of the tunes would need to be Nina Simone tunes, Sugar in My Bowl, The Other Woman. She is my new passion. Two of the songs would be rarely recorded tunes, Rough and Ready Man, which I performed in "Blues in the Night." I also wanted to do one song that my husband loves. That would be Stormy Monday.
Sweet, Sassy, Soulful and a little bit theatrical. "When a Woman Loves a Man"!!!
