The soothing sounds and good looks of Barbara Anderson
will be on display when she brings her provocative music
and talented band to the Cayuga Vault. The singer/songwriter's
lyrics say what we have all experienced at one time or
another: "I would never profess to understand the
opposite sex...All I know is the way I feel--you touch
me and my heart begins to reel." Her lyrics, like
her music, beautifully capture human emotions, and her
musical styles can be described as a simple fluctuation
between blues and jazz. If you're planning to attend this
musical show, don't expect new musical ground to be uncovered.
Anderson doesn't stray far from the conventional blues
and jazz sounds that most of us our accustomed to, yet
she laces the effective music of her supporting cast with
a grace and style that is a pleasure to witness.

way with a lyric and a vocal is so dang persuasive that
to get to know her, the Billie Holiday standard "Summertime"
(George Gershwin), went
down so smooth that Anderson could have laid out her
audience with just one
last whisper of vocal puff.
Anderson's music contains thought provoking lyrics this stuff
is good. Beautiful songs"
