Janis Siegel: The Tender Trap

Read "The Tender Trap" reviewed by AAJ Staff


Not to be confused with lounge singer Janet Seidel, Janis Siegel has framed her volume of the Great American Songbook as an “unabridged" pulp novel. Unfortunately, some of it should have been abridged. The album opens with an over-faded version of “Old Black Magic," skims along the musical waves of “My Ship," gets caught in the ...

Mimi Fox: Kicks

Read "Kicks" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

Mimi Fox: Kicks

Read "Kicks" reviewed by Douglas Payne
