Buoyed by her band, Liz McComb's mature and moving contralto illuminates the CD砇s twelve, mostly traditional tracks with a secular and sacred swing that is revolutionary in the way it sounds natural.
She could not have asked for a more finessed and formidable lineup of Crescent City sidemen including: Tuba virtuoso Kirk Joseph, trombonist Ben Singleton, the percussively profound drummers Bernard Johnson and Herlin Riley, the latter, a mainstay in Ahmad Jamal's and Wynton Marsalis砇s bands for many years, trumpeter Brian Murray, bassist Donald Ramsey, guitarist Jamba, organist Byron Johnson, percussionist Alfred “Uganda” Roberts, and the late Meters pianist Willie Tee.
