Jeanie Lambe's robust and husky voice takes a bit of getting used to. She does have a strong feel for the 19 standards she sings on this CD (which is taken from three different periods), but Lambe will not be everyone's cup of tea. More accessible is her husband Danny Moss' consistently inventive tenor solos. Lambe is accompanied by either Brian Dee, Brian Lemon or Johnny Varro on piano, Len Skeat or Isla Eckinger on bass and Oliver Jackson or Butch Miles on drums. Among the stronger selections are "Any Place I Hang My Hat Is Home," "Stompin' at the Savoy" (a tribute to Ella Fitzgerald), "Deed I Do" and "St. Louis Blues."
