Torchy Lullabies My Mother Sang Me

Torchy Lullabies My Mother Sang Me

Even at 60, the accolades kept rolling in for Lizzie Miles: "Powerhouse singing plus some intense torching" (St. Petersburg Times), "Unlimited zest and vocal resource" (Billboard), "Can lift a commonplace tune to inspired heights" (High Fidelity). The Creole Songbird hadn't lost the "shimmy" she made in a career she had entered when she was six years old. Classic sounds of New Orleans blues.
