Music Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Entertainment Weekly (p.102) - "Snarling through covers as far-flung as 'Welcome to the Jungle' and Little Big Town's 'Boondocks,' James brings some welcome grit to the retirement-album game." -- Grade: B+

JazzTimes (p.64) - "[H]er majestic authority isn't so much diminished as recalibrated, resulting in a gutsy, gravelly sound that suggests roads well traveled."

Living Blues (pp.40-41) - "THE DREAMER is a deeply soulful, quite bluesy masterpiece, one of the strongest of her prolific career."

Record Collector (magazine) (p.102) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "James' voice is rich, deep and expressive and her choice of covers impeccable as she delivers bold, sassy takes on King Floyd's 'Groove Me' and Otis Redding's 'Champagne And Wine'..."

Uncut (magazine) (p.90) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "A supremely sassy swansong."
