BWW Review: Natalie Douglas Breathtakingly (and Politically) Explores the Human Heart in CD Release Show at BirdlandBWW Review: Natalie Douglas Breathtakingly (and Politically) Explores the Human Heart in CD Release Show at Birdland
by Remy Block - Mar 29, 2016

I have not entered a purely escapist fantasyland, but surrendered to the capable musical ensemble on stage. Douglas wore a long white gown (chosen out of the pile when her husband made an approvingly bawdy comment as she tried it on for him) and her band-all six of whom appear on the record-wore all black. The appearance was a study in contrast, but the group, was most assuredly a cohesive instrument. (more...)
