Album Notes
Brassy, sassy and sexy blues and ballads. Eileen Howard has been described as "singer well worth discovering" by Los Angeles Jazz Scene and as "one of the most creative and swingin’ singers ever to vocalize on the local jazz scene" by jazz deejay and reviewer Fritz "The Night Owl" Peerenboom.

A New York and Columbus-based singer, Howard is well known for her swinging style, original compositions and engaging concerts. An award-winning actress, Howard performed in FOLLIES with Short North Stage at the historic Garden Theater in Columbus, forming a relationship that led to a series of sold-out Blues Cabarets in their intimate Green Room space the following winter.

The cabarets blended Howard's acting skills, spontaneous humor, and passionate singing into a package that delighted audiences. Filled with sassy selections from blues artists as well as poignant ballads from The Great American Songbook, plus one original number, this album captures some of the excitement of the live show. Two of her "reasons to sing the blues" give just a taste of the spoken part of the cabaret act.

The album includes numbers performed by legendary blues singers like Bessie Smith (I Need a Little Sugar in My Bowl), Willie Dixon (Built for Comfort), and Ida Cox (Wild Women Don't Have the Blues) as well as more recent blues such as Saffire: The Uppity Blues Women (He Really Makes it Hard for Me to Sing the Blues) and Mose Allison's Everybody's Cryin' Mercy. Poignant and intimate standards such as Body and Soul, Fever and One for My Baby show Howard's vocal and emotional range.

Amazing Live Performance
For anyone who has ever recorded their performances live, you know how difficult it is to translate the moments on to disc. Ms. Howard pulls it off well, along with her extremely talented 5 piece band. It's literally like being in the front row at one of her fabulous concerts! Enjoy the warmth, humor and most of all the fantastic music!
