If you would enjoy a laid-back nightclub scene with a smoothed out jazz band, and a lady with an amazingly strong voice pouring down like silver, this album is for you. This classic LP from Jazz Great Linda Cable has now been re-reissued on CD.
London-born Linda Cable started her singing career in Australia singing the blues. Developing her own unique style, she is renowned in Australian jazz circles and has progressed into world class jazz singer. Her interpretation of up-tempo jazz or scintillating moody ballads is rare artistry indeed.
“There seems to be a fair amount of intelligence involved here and so there is not a great deal of smoke. Its a clean burn as they say ... all flames, and clingy ideas and memories working overtime behind your eyeballs.”
— Ralph Morningstar, Ear to Ear magazine, 1986
