All Hail the Queen

Quick takes on a terrific disc: Queen Latifah makes one great jazz album as she comes clean with her roots and moves farther away from the street stuff. Arrangements are tight, the musicians swing as they should, and vocals perfectly float into your ears. Keeps me eager for more.

Good cuts- Simply Beautiful and Mercy, Mercy, Mercy, showing alot of diversity in style. Don't Miss Cuts- Hard Times and If I Had You. Just stunning. Perfect for those late night top down in the car summer drives. Trust me, you'll want to hear these over and over.
