Great Review From Jazz Weekly!
I woke up to another fine review of Daddy Said So. I am immensely grateful for it all. Thanks to Jazz Weekly music critic, George W. Harriss; you started off my day beautifully. Thank you so much and thank you again. Cheers ~ Douyé
Nigerian singer Douye’ has a molasses thick voice and keeps it subdued and misty on this rich collection of vintage standards with an all star team including Kenny Barron/p, Ron Carter/b, Bob Sheppard/sax, John Clayton/b, John Clayton/b and Roy McCurdy/dr. Usually associated with R&B, Douye’ is absolutely convincing as she serves up a husky yet subdued set which includes a warm “But Beautiful” an elliptical “Round Midnight” and seductively samba’d “Autumn Leaves.” Her voice sounds like a clarinet during “Mood Indigo” and her bass-vocal duet on “Nature Boy” is drop dead stunning. This is a keeper!!
