Libby York: Here with You

Read "Here with You" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Libby York: Blue Gardenia

Read "Blue Gardenia" reviewed by Jack Bowers

First, thanks to Southport Records for resisting the temptation to have vocalist Libby York strike a seductive pose à la Diana Krall to promote Libby’s debut album, Blue Gardenia. Not much is said about York except that she’s from Chicago, started singing rather late at age 35, and logged time in New York City and Key ...
