Take a walk "On the Sunnyside of the Street" with jazz vocalist Dawn Lambeth as she delights you with her effervescent renditions of songs from the Swing Era, evoking the bathtub gin of Boardwalk Empire as well as the top hats and tails of the Great Gatsby.  You'll think you've traveled back in time to an old fashioned supper club as you journey from hot swing tunes of the 1920's to romantic ballads of the Big Band Era.

"Her voice is special – a beautiful instrument, lending itself easily to elation or the bittersweet feelings so often found in the songs of the great period – and she brings deep feeling to her music, without ever emoting or overacting. She doesn’t imitate anyone, but the memorable singers we all know resonate through her own singular approach, gentle and unaffected."
