"The Music is the Magic"

New Album from Lainie Cooke

"Given the deep jazz feeling and serious vocal chops displayed by Lainie Cooke on her new CD The Music Is the Magic, it’s hard to believe that the disc is only Cooke’s third.But this masterpiece of vocal jazz, which was released March 17 by Ralph Peterson’s Onyx Music Label, affirms her standing in the front ranks of jazz singers performing today."
