Jazz vocalist Louise Rogers has been gradually winning over converts with her beautiful burnished tone, clear diction, flawless intonation, and impeccable musicianship. Her natural, unforced delivery harkens back to such pure singers as Peggy Lee, Ella Fitzgerald, Chris Connor, and Doris Day. And while she may possess considerable technique and a capacity to improvise and scat up a storm like her most significant role model, Ella, Rogers takes a more relaxed and restrained approach on Black Coffee, her fifth recording overall and first for Chesky Records.
Black Coffee is her 5th recording, and finds Rogers taking a more relaxed and restrained approach over 12 songs, including standards “Ain’t Misbehavin’” and “Gentle Rain” and a moving take on “Alice In Wonderland” as well pop numbers, such as Peggy Lee’s 1956 hit “Black Coffee”.
