I purchased Melissa's CD at the Sunday Jazz Meeting, and totally agree with

Melissa's great delivery; straight ahead a la Kilgore; the great selection

Boy, did I get my money's worth this time!
P.S. Melissa sang the National Anthem at the opening of our Western Swing
Hall of Fame induction ceremony in October, and I never heard it sung
better; Straight, with feeling. And not one bit of melisma to detract from
the dignity of the anthem. You won't hear it that way on TV.
