A young singer, Margaret Glaspy, she's a Berklee (the Boston one, not CA) dropout now doing a burgeoning solo career, played a lot on the Boston and now Brooklyn folk and jazz scenes (this is a very un-country version of Hank Williams)


and Norah Jones, she covers a lot of bases. I like the folkier end of her range (a Tom Waits song}:

Just came back here to say that though I didn't explore her work way back then (just didn't have her albums yet) in the last year she has enthralled me. Blows Lady Day out of the water and is in my top 10 artists of all time.

Nice to see you too.

Hadn't heard of her, her voice is velvet.

@Robert Gentel,
Try Val Wiseman. Specifically her album of 1990 "Lady Sings the Blues".

Of course as you all said nobody compares to Lady Day. Some similar artist that may appeal to you though are; Sarah Vaughn, Julie London, and i'm sure you know of ella and etta, Bessie Smith, Peggy Lee!!!! They are kind of all in the same genre I guess with great distinctions to each other though in voice and sound, but nevertheless they are all amazing. This post is old...oh well.
