Etta James' "Time After Time" is a favorite of Debra's
Although rhythm and blues legend Etta James is probably best known for her hit single 'At Last', this album showcases her incomparable talent singing such classics as Don't Go to Strangers, Love is Here to Stay, The Nearness of You, Imagination and Night & Day. Although these songs have been recorded hundreds of times before, James is a master. Her own life experiences and worldly wisdom have no doubt influenced her musical interpretations. The backup musicians are incredible performers on their own. From Ronnie Buttacavoli on trumpet to Cedar Walton on piano and Herman Riley/Eddie Harris on tenor sax, you will be treated to the best. Every track is an amazing listening experience. If you are like me, you may wear out the disc from overuse. Remember to sing along and enjoy.
