Overview

Normal as Blueberry Pie: A Tribute to Doris Day

For Nellie McKay, this album is the natural outcome of years of enraptured listening to Dorris Day's music. Nellie handpicked these songs from over 600 recordings and acts as the album's producer, arranger, and performer.

Nellie's Verve debut is a sophisticated but accessible recording with spare and tasteful arrangements that clearly put the focus on the songs and McKay's exquisite vocal stylings. McKay's fresh take on this music is smartly delivered with a curtsy to Doris, a nod to convention, and a unique twist all her own. From the Label
