For her first album under her name, Connie Evingson has chosen Broadway musicals as the session's theme, with a heavy dose of melodies written by Lerner and Loewe. Fortunately, rather than just parroting the way these gems were performed in their original settings, Evingson has adopted unique arrangements to present this well-known music in a very novel and entertaining manner. She is joined in this endeavor with outstanding musicians from Minnesota's Twin Cities area, who happily engage with her as they present material from some of the Great White Way's finest musical moments. "I've Grown Accustomed to His Face" from My Fair Lady is done as a torch song with Sanford Moore's piano creating the necessary melancholia…

Jazz vocalist Connie Evingson is joined by a true all-star cast for Some Cats Know: Ray Brown, Al Grey, Doc Severinsen, and Jimmy Hamilton, to name a few. (Evingson's usual Minneapolis-based band is on hand as well, including Sanford Moore on piano, Terry Moore on bass, and Dave Karr on saxophone.) The song list is great, too: "I've Got the World on a String," "Yesterday/Yesterdays" (crossing Lennon-McCartney with Kern-Harbach), "All the Things You Are," "'Round Midnight," and "Anthropology." Highlights include a lickety-split Cole Porter melody of "I Love Paris" and "It's Alright with Me" punctuated by bursts of scat, sax, and percussion, and a lilting "Bluesette" with composer Toots Thielemans guesting on harmonica.

Jazz vocalist Connie Evingson is known for taking divergent musical paths. Her eclectic catalog of recordings for Minnehaha Music covers such varied themes as Peggy Lee, the Beatles, jazz elders, and most recently, "hot club" music a la Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli (Gypsy in My Soul, '04). Anticipating her next release, one would expect Evingson's music to take another divergent turn. But a chance meeting with a young hot club group from Sweden inspired her to delve deeper into the Django style before moving in a new direction…

It's a daunting task to record a tribute album to a legend like Peggy Lee, if for no other reason than every song will be compared to the original, but Minneapolis-based Connie Evingson does it, and does it well. While she uses similar arrangements, she doesn't try to sound like Lee. Her voice is deep and sultry like Lee's, but it's also somewhat lighter. To her credit, Evingson's tribute is not only to songs that Lee sang, but to those she wrote, reminding us that the multitalented Ms. Lee was also a composer of some note…

An eclectic collection of songs performed by one of the best hot club / gypsy jazz groups in the world. Marking her tenth release on Minnehaha Music and third record in the hot club style of Django Reinhardt, vocalist Connie Evingson teams up with one of the leading groups in the hot club genre, the John Jorgenson Quintet. “I knew I wanted to work with this fabulous band when I first heard them at Djangofest orthwest,” says Evingson. “We performed together in Minneapolis a year later and had so much fun, we decided to make this record.”…

Connie Evingson may have just released the best album of her career to date, which is saying a lot. In 2009, she told MinnPost about her interest in Norman Gimbel, an Oscar- and Grammy-winning lyricist whose name has largely been forgotten but whose songs The Girl from Ipanema, Killing Me Softly with His Song, I Will Wait for You are part of the canon. Her new CD, Sweet Happy Life, is the first all-Gimbel album ever recorded, and it is delicious. Hip-swinging samba and bossa nova, sensuous love songs ( his gaze swept over me like a slow hot wind ), and a song by Antonio Jobim with never-before-recorded lyrics by Gimbel.

Connie Evingson, who has recorded a number of CDs for her Minnehaha music label, is clearly deserving of wider recognition with this delightful Dave Frishberg songbook. Evingson captures the essence of Frishberg's lyrics, appropriately sassy in "Peel Me a Grape" (without overdoing it), delighting in the exotic "Zanzibar" (with Karr switching to flute), and swinging like mad in "Can't Take You Nowhere" (a signature lyric by Frishberg, a vocal adaptation of an old Tiny Kahn song called "T.N.T.").

Recorded in Stockholm with the Hot Club of Sweden, "Stockholm Sweetnin' " is the follow up to Connie Evingson's highly successful tribute to Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grapelli, "Gypsy in My Soul". Like 'Gypsy in My Soul", "Stockholm Sweetnin' " features tunes typical in the hot club genre ("After You've Gone" , "If I Had You") as well as unlikely adaptations (Abbey Lincoln's "Throw it Away", Michel Legrand's "Windmills of Your Mind").

Connie Smith is perhaps the only female singer in the history of country music who can truly claim to be the heiress to Patsy Cline's throne. It's not that there aren't many amazing vocalists in the field, and plenty of legends among them. But in terms of the pure gift of interpretation of taking virtually any song and making it a country song of class and distinction, Smith is it.
