Lavay Smith & Her Red Hot Skillet Lickers: Everybody’s Talkin’ ’bout Miss Thing

A tribute to "the elders" of jazz by one of the idiom’s hottest new groups. Smith’s vocals evoke Billie Holliday and Dinah Washington; arranger/pianist Chris Siebert leads a blend of hot new talent and jazz veterans through this collection of original songs and blues standards.

Released: 1/1/1999
Genre: Jazz
Dream Record
Lavay Smith and Chris Siebert brought together some of the greatest names in swing and blues for this album.
Miss Thing
Kate Moss as wallflower? As Lavay and company demonstrate, the "Miss Thing" thing is a matter of attitude.
The Voice
Chris Siebert acknowledges the role of great jazz musicians and music in this album, but points out that the real theme is Lavay and her singing.
That’s What I Like
Lavay’s quest for musical alternatives led her to Bessie, Billie, Sarah, and other great vocalists.
