Following review  by William Gregory of Midwest Ursine


With Arms Wide Open


Ms. Dexter is Mother Nature incarnate. She is a no nonsense singer that sings with the power of an erupting volcano and the sincerity of a street-wise earth mother that's been there, done that. Her Alto voice grabs each note and doesn't let go until she's sure that you've listened to her, damnit! Ms. Dexter has always had an interesting repertoire that is never conventional or boring. She easily alternates between the blues, which her voice is perfectly colored for, Rodgers and Hammerstein, Blood, Sweat and Tears and Bob Dylan. Yes folks, momma is eclectic and we would have it no other way. When she sings, I Want More, you better get it for her, no matter what it is that she wants more of. One of Ms. Dexter's signature tunes is “You Don't Know What Love Is.  It's included here as a medley with Billy Strayhorn's gem of a tune, Something to Live For.  This is where Ms. Dexter lays it all on the line through her raw, bare and sentimental renditions of these ballads. A word of warning to many of you cabaret music aficionados who like your music like wallpaper, Ms. Dexter must be listened to. Even through her recordings, she will disrupt your dinner party. She takes us back to the days when voices were distinct and unique. This CD almost feels like seeing her live. She's great. Available through cdbaby.com.
