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.
