"it is impossible not to be moved by this performer...with her lush, sultry & robust voice, Willson can get a rise out of a stone statue."

Michelle's first recording for Rounder Records, produced by Ron Levy; featuring Sugar Ray Norcia and Harry Piano Man Van Walls.
With a superb band of New Orleans and New England musicians and featuring original material by two of America's greatest songwriting teams, Dan Penn & Spooner Oldham and Doc Pomus & Mac Rebennack ( Dr. John ), Michelle makes these songs come alive with feeling, exquisite interpretation and breathtaking vocal technique.
This is the album with "Long John Blues" - the dentist song!
Michelle Willson's jazz inflected blues music matches an unforgettably great voice with an ability to swing like mad, and just the right attitude to tell these stories of hard-won love, loss and triumph.
