Lavay Smith performs performs the title track from her album "Everybody's Talkin' 'Bout Miss Thing". Filmed at Amnesia in San Francisco, CA, June 27, 2009

The Queen Of Classic Jazz & Blues in the authentic style of the 1940’s and 1950’s celebrates a new album “Miss Smith To You.”

The Skillet Lickers are bona fide jazz players, proffering chops and Basie-esque arrangements …Then there’s Smith, whose sultry vocals readily betray the influence of Billie Holiday, Little Esther and Dinah Washington while sounding slavish to none.” – Orange County Weekly The saucy vocalist and her eight-piece crew actually know the difference between jump music and bland R&B in corny suits. They have been a working unit since 1989 and sound as tight as the legendary musicians they choose.
