It's the voice.  Powerful, melodic, energetic, expressive, varied, beautiful.  Did I mention powerful?

Vonda and two perfect accompanists wowed a packed Rrazz Room last night in the final of her two appearances in the 175-seat house.  There is just something about how she sounds that works whether it is a nostalgic riff from her days on Ally McBeal, a sizzling cover of an Aretha Franklin lightening bolt, or an original musical poem from her most recent album  from the Sun.

Of course it is all about the music, but the evening was helped by Vonda's happy banter with the audience and band. She looks like a sexy Judy Collins, and as if she has not aged in the 13 years since she appeared on the television show. She also was present and endlessly gracious at the CD signing festival after the show.  Classy and classic.

She's was a force of nature in this cabaret: moving, playing piano, clapping, talking, and — most of all — singing.
