Simply put, she was amazing! What a voice! What a presence! What a performer!
To be honest, I was not familiar with Ranee Lee before I heard of this benefit concert at the school. I checked with a cousin of mine who is a “jazz guy” and he told me that she was phenomenal. Even with that glowing reference, I was amazed at just how good she is.
My favourite song of the evening was Joni Mitchell’s Both Sides Now – always a favourite, but wow – what a version this woman did.
We thoroughly enjoyed – could you tell? 🙂
