Re: “The Joynt

Where IS this place?! It's hard for people who go to work at 5am to get to 9pm shows during the week, but it's worth it with this singer!

I did a google search for her and found these reviews for the Joynt. I saw Erin at Andy's Jazz Club last weekend and it was a mind, body, spirit event. She did some outstanding arrangements of 'I'll Be Home for Christmas', 'Just Squeeze Me', and 'Love Me or Leave Me'. As a former jazz musician/critic/producer, I will attest to her quality, allure and innovation. I liked that she took chances with rhythms and time signatures in the most unpredictable songs. Erin's voice really is the Hope Diamond of jazz voices. Her pianist, Joan Hickey, was brilliant.

But

My favorite part of the night was when the room ROARED in ovation for her after their last song and she backed away from the mic in bashfulness. She was so lovable! Yes, yes... investigate this talented artist!
