Clairdee/John Moriarty Trio: Plugged In

Clairdee is a classy singer with a supple voice and sophisticated style reminiscent of the late great ladies of jazz. On her debut album, the San Francisco-based vocalist delivers dynamic renditions of jazz evergreens including “Body and Soul,” “Autumn Leaves,” “Just Friends,” “When I Fall in Love” and “Don’t Misunderstand,” as well as a medley of three Gershwin songs. Pianist John Moriarty, bassist Ruth Davies and drummer Deszon Claiborne complement this gorgeous voice.
