On her fourth Bullseye release, Michelle Willson has arrived. With producer Scott Billington at the helm and her superb band in the pocket, Willson is a match for any woman out there with a mike in her hand and a headful of tunes. She is no blues howler; her vibe is a passionate sophistication that craves rhythm and groove. She is a hipster at heart, and her jazzy feel for the blues—and the swing that never leaves her voice—set her apart from the pack. And while Willson fancies the Kansas City and jump styles, she can raise the temperature to sweltering ("Think About Me") and slip into something a little low-down (the title track). This proves



to be one of the year's most appropriately titled albums.—PVV
