Tammy Weis Band/BJ Cole/Al Cherry

Music, Jazz
Excellent Canadian singer exploring a fine body of standards and covers here performs songs from her recent album 'Place to Be' alongside a fine band featuring chill-inducing lapsteel guitar maestro Cole. Raising the bar with a set of material that features her string folk/alt.country-informed originals, it's Weis's ability to find hidden depths within the Beatles' 'Help' that impresses most. A real gem of a vocalist.
