Melinda Whitaker is exquisite…a delight for anyone who likes vocal jazz. Her song is her life, and Melinda sings life like no other.
Dr. Peter Gouzouasis, Music Director, JAZZ90/WRTI, Philadelphia (1983-1988)
Melinda Whitaker is one of North America’s premiere jazz vocalists. Her rich dark voice, her understanding of the lyrics, and her jazz phrasing are imppeccable. And what’s more she swings!
Gavin Walker, The Jazz Show, 101.9 FM Vancouver (UBC)
What makes Lucky So-And-So! is Whitaker’s rich, burnished contralto. She brings bona fide warmth and emotional depth to familiar songs such as the title track, as well as My Foolish Heart, The Song is You and Stevie Wonder’s Creepin’.
Listen to the percussive fun and excitement on the opening The Song is You and you’ll know you’re in for a treat. This album is a winner vocally and instrumentally.
