Tasty by Miss Justine

From the land of Philly Jazz comes the veteran vocalist Miss Justine. There are shades of Billie Holiday in her voice but not in style. Justine is a truly capable vocalist and is accompanied collectively by Don Wilson and Jimmy Gaskins, piano; Matt Parrish and Darryl Hall, bass; Milt McLaurin, drums and Gerald Smith, guitar. This is a truly competent Philly group.

Miss Justine has performed in the area for some 20 years and has worked with Al Grey, Butch Ballard, Billy Eckstine, Kenny Barron, McCoy Tyner and Lionel Hampton. She spent many years with the late pianist Gerald Price who appears on the last track which is from an older live club date. Tunes are varied and include compositions by Gershwin, Mercer, Jobim and Stevie Wonder. Justine treats all the songs with immaculate good taste. I liked this CD very much.
