Tammy Weis/BJ Cole/Tom Cawley/Al Cherry

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