Vesna Pisarović - With Suspicious Minds

P.S.: don't be shy… for me she was an revelation… fresh… new approach to vocal jazz… something between good cabaret, las wegas and jazz… even if i'm local… and i knew her previous work vesna in concert with the band blew our mind… i recommend that you go and see them if you have a chance! the trombonist is faaaaantastic! the rhythm section steady and moving…. excellent… especially the concert version!
