Album Notes
Lorraine’s first release on Jazzed Media includes collaborations with Russell Ferrante [of Yellowjackets], Shelly Berg, Eddie Arkin, Tony Morales, Bill Elliott and Michael B. Nelson [of The Horn Heads]. Tierney Sutton provides a guest vocal on “Traffic and Weather,” and The Manhattan Transfer’s Janis Siegel and Cheryl Bentyne join Lorraine on “Very Unbecoming” and “Waiting Tables.”


“[New York City Drag] Feather did it at all… applied her witty way with a lyric to a set of vocalese numbers arching through the stunning complexities of Waller's piano lines… tricky inner rhymes, offbeat stories and sardonic references.”
- Don Heckman, Los Angeles Times

“[Café Society] Exciting..impeccably performed..one of the freshest vocal releases you’ll hear
all year.”
- Ed Trefzger, Jazz Week

“[Such Sweet Thunder] Energetic, enchanting and exceptional..she’s utterly comfortable and confident...sings her meticulous, clever poetry in a silvery, light voice...”
- Carol Sloane, Down Beat

“[Dooji Wooji] After last year's brilliant sojourn through Ellingtonia with the dazzling Such Sweet Thunder, it's hard to imagine Feather outdoing the creative voodoo she's summoned thus far... hard, that is, until you wade into Dooji Wooji (Sanctuary) and hear her conjure a dozen new magical flights of fancy.”
—Christopher Loudon, Jazz Times

Barbara Brenner/Suzanne Lampert

Delightful lyrics, beautifully rendered, and wonderfully surprising in places.
