As an old performer(drummer/vocalist for 9 years in the 60's) I more than appreciated the unique talent that is Joanne Shaw Taylor, as I am new to "discover" her, so it was all a pleasure to participate in. I also bought the WILD cd, which is terrific. I did notice the inclusion of backing singers gave the cd a more complete sound. Looking forward to her in 2018.
