I don't usually expect to hear gems like this on an airline's selection of tunes. So I was surprised to hear Ledisi's single PIECES OF ME on a flight. Such a pretty song and what a voice! Her name is pronounced lettuce-y and i know that many tried to get her to change it for showbiz reasons and she stuck to her guns and now has close to 2 million hits on this song. Chris March introduced her to me years ago and we spend a few magical hours together hanging around in the Village. I think her first release was on the jazz tip (which she also sings brilliantly) but her new album is good ol' fashioned r&b. So if you like soul music, there are other tracks on this album which I'm sure you'll enjoy.
