MUSIC REVIEW BY Dick Crockett, The Voice, 88.7FM, Sacramento, CA

VIEW THE CD DETAIL PAGE

Vocalist Carrie Wicks has a dedicated stance on placing her original stamp on just about anything she sings, as most evident in "I'll Get Around to It," a nice, flossy blues statement, a Wicks/Nottingham original, by the way, a muse of '30s and '40s after-hours days and nights. Carrie Wicks is a true original in a tradition aptly portrayed by Billie Holiday, Blossom Dearie, Chris Conner, and Anita O'Day.

Her version of Elvis Costello's "Almost Blue" is positively steamy as Southern summer heat.

Wicks has a top band in her corner, led by pianist-arranger-composer Bill Anschell, bassist Jeff Johnson, drummer Byron Vannoy, and reedist Hans Teuber.

To say this is a fine CD is an understatement for Carrie Wicks; I'll Get Around To It will grow on you after various listens. It'll fit perfectly into your new imagined portfolio of articulation, for Carrie Wicks is so easy on the ears!
