ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Lillie was born into a musical family in Greenville, Mississippi. The daughter of a high school band director and jazz bandleader, her first musical experiences included jazz and classical music as well as sacred choral literature. Lillie has been a professional performer for over 15 years, discovering the jazz genre as a vocalist as an undergraduate music education major at Mississippi University for Women. Lillie continued her musical studies at Georgia State University earning a Master of Music degree with a concentration in music education.

Lillie is no stranger to the stage having numerous dramatic and musical theatre credits including a film cameo in Sweet Home Alabama. (See the DVD alternate ending) Her musical theatre experience segued into a love of the Great American Songbook. She has developed a powerful personal style strongly influenced by Nancy Wilson, Carmen McCrae, Shirley Horne and many others. Her delicate treatment of ballads is evident in "You Don't Know What Love Is" from her debut recording release, How Long Has This Been Going On.

Ms. Huddleston has been a featured vocalist at the Atlanta Jazz Festival, the Stone Mountain Jazz Jamboree, Callenwolde Jazz on the Lawn, and the Jocada Museum of Jazz History. Please email lilliehuddleston@mail2jazz.com for booking information.

This CD is everything I like about jazz.
I'm not giving this CD 4 stars lightly. Lillie has earned it. I don't listen to much jazz because I'm so tired of the jazz that gets played on the radio. Ms. Huddleston changes that with her angelic voice accompanied by the smoothest music.

A delightful surprise
I started out searching for a sensitive and expressive vocal rendition of the title song and encountered this one. The CD Baby site provides nicely adequate music clips by which to evaluate the music and I was very pleasantly surprised by Lillie Huddleston's rendition of this classic ballad. I also enjoy her treatment of the other songs on this CD.

CD Baby sent it out very quickly and everything about the transaction was very good.

I only wish the liner notes on this CD carried more background about Lillie and the instrumental musicians who created this album.
