i feel as if i’ve given jazz vocalists a bit of a cold shoulder for the last 25 letters or so, and maybe it’s time to even the score a bit.  other than nina simone herself, this is my favorite tribute – jhelisa really has an amazing voice, and i love what she’s done with these songs.  if you still have a browser that supports flash, try jhelisamusic.com (i’ve linked to another page below).  a tip o’ the hat to pdub2000 for sharing this back in 2010.
