Stephen Holden on Nellie McKay

The NYTimes on the aging wunderkid’s salute to Doris Day: “She is the rare young female singer completely at home (and on pitch) when singing in a classic pop style. At the same time, many pop-jazz idioms between the 1950s and today are echoed in her voice and lend her phrasing a freewheeling ease and flexibility and a sense that she can go anywhere at any moment. She has even dipped into rap.”
