Stephen Holden on Paula West

The NYTimes reviews the jazzbaret diva at the Algonquin: “For the jazz singer Paula West, the American songbook, from Irving Berlin through Bob Dylan, is a banquet from which she selects favorite dishes and stirs in her own secret ingredients to make them her own. Those added flavors include a sly sense of mischief that can quicken the pulse of a Berlin song like “The Best Things Happen While You’re Dancing” or turn Cole Porter’s “I’m in Love Again,” into a delirious explosion of joy.”
