Singer Ernestine Anderson knows how to have a good time and make sure an audience has a good time as well. This is exactly what you hear on her latest release, Nightlife, the product of several live performances at Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Dizzy’s Club Coca Cola. Ms. Anderson’s ebullient spirit is contagious and she’s seems as ‘at home’ on the stage, as she would be in own her living room. The music has a decidely bluesy flavor that is made thoroughly enjoyable by the singer and an outstanding collection of talents, which includes, the great Houston Person on tenor saxophone, Lafayette Harris, Jr. on piano, Jerome Jennings on drums, with Lonnie Plaxico and Chip Jackson handling bass duties on alternate tracks. Add this recording to your collection and like the audiences that were witness to these fantastic performances, you are sure to get more than your money’s worth .
