She has won numerous awards including Stereo Review's Album of the Year three times; was named Singer of the Year by the Los Angeles Times; and has been acclaimed in publications like the New York Times, People, and the Washington Post. Her newest CD is Easy to Love -- The Songs of Cole Porter, released on her long time label, Concord Jazz.
