Stephen Holden on Stephanie Powers

The NYTimes finds its Hart: “With her bright, crisp delivery, impeccable enunciation, steady intonation, and forthright musical personality, Ms. Powers has a vocal presence that suggests gleaming sunlight on glass. Her straightforward theatrical style incorporates only the tiniest smidgens of jazz phrasing. At Tuesday’s opening-night show the stream of familiar standards was dotted with well-chosen biographical anecdotes (mostly about Hart, not Ms. Powers). She was accompanied by an average trio: Mary Ekler on piano, Randy Landas on bass and Jim McCarty on drums.”
