Lillian Boutte'- This Bitter Earth

It no longer bears fruit.

Lillian Boutte' performs today at the French Quarter Festival in New Orleans. She’s part of an extended musical family from Louisiana. This lush reading of the standard associated with Dinah Washington comes from her 1995 album But...Beautiful. That's Leroy Jones with the trumpet solo. The light synths are by new Kansas City transplant Loren Pickford. Lillian is the subject of a feature in the current issue of Offbeat magazine.

Dan- I use EZ Archive as my music host. They've been buggy for the last couple weeks. But it's working now. Try again, and let me know what you think. Have you been reading the Star's stories about the transplanted jazzer? He seems like a great guy.
