Overview

While it might not be as ambitious as her previous album, New York City Drag, where Lorraine Feather showed that she had the vocal and artistic chops to handle reinterpreting a number of Fats Waller tunes, Café Society does a nice job of showcasing this longtime vocalist's artistic range. From the hyper-exuberant version of "Jungle Rhythm" (featured in the sequel to the Disney classic The Jungle Book), to her reinterpretation of Duke Ellington instrumentals on "Creole Love Call" and "Rockin' in Rhythm," this album is a well-produced showcase of what Lorraine Feather can do. A number of originals co-written with famed songwriters like David Benoit and Don Grusin help add variety, with songs that range from swing to the softer side of contemporary jazz.

Not only can Lorraine Feather sing marvelously, she has a way with words, timing, and rhythms that is uncanny. So many subtle nuances on so many different levels, but everything works. Ms. Feather has found a way to make all of the elements of writing and performing come together smoothly. It must be incredibly difficult to do, but she makes it seem like it's effortless. That is talent. And now, I cannot even think of leaving the house without listening to "We're Rockin' in Rhythm" to put a smile on my face and a spring in my step that lasts all day and well into the night!!
