Weaving an informative narrative into a well-paced performance, featuring some of Ms. O'Day's most popular songs, jazz vocalist Vicki Burns pays a loving tribute to one of her greatest musical influences.

Vicki Burns is a jazz singer who has been delighting audiences for years. A vocalist with impeccable taste, a sure sense of rhythm and a glorious tone, she infuses each song with heartfelt expression, digging into the lyrics and melody for their richest interpretation. No wonder the great jazz drummer; Max Roach once described Vicki's singing as “a gold mine"!

“Vicki Burns has a limitless future. Her very attractive voice, versatile style and infectious delivery combine to give her her own memorable sound." Scott Yanow

“Avoiding the predictability of safe havens, her music brims with many more surprises and uncharted delights in the jazz tradition. Vicki Burns is irresistible." Dr Herb Wong, Bay Area Producer and reviewer, Jazz Education Journal
