This is a wonderful tribute to the most soulful and productive period of her career.
The outakes,and demos far from detracting from the performances, allow her voice,piano and supporting musicians to come to the fore. And what a line up of backing players and singers.Absolutely stellar- The Sweet Inspirations ,Billy Preston,Melvin Lastie,Bernard Purdie,King Curtis and more.
