Laverne Butler - No Looking Back

Laverne Butler - No Looking Back
Item# JD091

Product Description

The fact that No Looking Back is the debut recording from vocalist LaVerne Butler is somewhat misleading because she is a veteran performer who has been creating the sounds of jazz for over a decade. She is a seasoned artist and a consummate professional, LaVerne Butler has waited a long time for the opportunity to make this recording. Like her "foremothers", she has paid her dues but what No Looking Back makes perfectly clear is that the tradition of these women with all of its magical creativity, soulful emotion and technical facility is alive and well and continuing to grow in the singing of LaVerne Butler. "When I hear the word 'jazz,' I think immediately 'sophistication.' I also think of 'personal'--very, very personal--that which is of the person and of no one else."
