Black Coffee
From first to last a superb CD. Melva is a wonderful performer (a knockout performance on the title tune and on "It Might as Well be Spring") and all of the other musicians are first rate. Swings hard.

Great CD. Every song rocks!

Tamara at CD Baby


Internationally-known and loved jazz singer, Melva Houston truly dazzles on Black Coffee, transfixing her listeners with her smokin’ voice, perfectly suited for bluesy R&B and soul. Coloring these jazzy numbers with some real no-nonsense attitude and with a powerhouse combo backing her up, this disc ranges from a variety of sauntering ballads to swinging shakers. Having recorded with R&B greats such as Isaace Hayes, Otis Redding, Rufus Thomas and Wilson Pickett at the fresh age of 16, Houston again reminds her fans why she’s such a force to be reckoned with. Without a doubt, this is the jazz pick of the month.
