What an amazing performer! She captivated the audience and seduced us with her warm, funny, genuine personality. And she entertained a packed house with her amazing voice. It so happens she performed at the Count Basie Theater on Count Basie's birthday...what a gift to him. Towards the end of the show she invited her fans, "especially those of the female persuasion" to swoon at the edge of the stage by bringing out her banjo and tantalizing us all. I wanted to go join those lucky women...but didn't feel that kind of "omg" connection. She sang to me. She didn't know it. As I'm sure everyone felt the same... but that was the connection I felt... sitting there, center mezzanine, with imagined eye contact,...she sang to me.
