Sonya Hensley has made her name in both movies (“What’s Love Got to Do With It?”) and cabaret, with this album a tribute to many of her inspirations. The songs are from both the studio and concerts, with a variety of backup groups, but through it all, she sounds like she’s having a great time and wants you to join in. Much of the time she’s with a hip team of James Leary III/b, Donald Dean/dr, Terry Evans/g and Phil Wright/p and she shows the timing of a 9th inning closer on pieces like “My Baby Just Cares For Me” and has fun with the some old school tunes such as “Born On A Friday” and”Evil Gal Blues.” She does wonders on “In A Sentimental Mood” and her duet with Wright on “Over the Rainbow” is a corker. This lady’s a humdinger!
