Shout Sister Shout - Hit That Jive Jack (CD)
Shout Sister Shout stretches the realm of old-time American Jazz with torch swing numbers alongside bluesy ballads. Steppin' In It, known for their revival of old-time music, provide the perfect backdrop for Rachael Davis who posses a voice that demands your attention.
The quintet is a tribute to the smoky, sophisticated sound of 1930s and '40s jazz, with plenty of influence from Cole Porter, Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Nat King Cole Trio and Sarah Vaughan, and it's a trip to hear Davis channel those old greats. Of course, it doesn't hurt to have a bunch of guys playing the hell out of vintage instruments as backup. - The Metro Times- Detroit, MI
