Yes, she’s drop-dead gorgeous, but she’s also drop-dead accomplished. This one-night event is in the service of indroducing new album You Are There. Get this: On the record, she sings with piano only but is accompanied, in alphabetical order, by Monty Alexander, Kenny Barron, Alan Broadbent, Dave Brubeck, Freddy Cole, Benny Green, the late Hank Jones, Steve Kuhn, Michel Legrand, Mike Renzi (who’s this gig’s ivory-tickler), and Cedar Walton. You don’t need to know any more.
