SImply the finest yet most underrated and underappreciated vocalist of the past 25 years, Melissa turns in a tour de force performance. Had the Traditional Pop Vocal Grammy category existed at the time she surely would have been deserverdly nominated -- and should have clearly won hands down. Melissa offers incredible vocal tributes to her musical mentors - Judy Garland, Barbra Streisand, Dionne Warwick, Billie Holiday, Sarah Vaughan, Ella Fitzgerald, Rosemary Clooney, Edith Piaf -- even Eydie Gorme. While retaining her own distinctive style, she sings each song with a flavor of the original artist -- showing how that artist's style impacted and her influenced her own incredible artistry. The only two ladies sadly not included in this tribute are the late Dusty Springfield and the late Laura Nyro, both of whom had an incredible impact on Melissa. A classic album, classic performances. A class act all the way.
