Lovely review in The Sunday Times today

We had a lovely review in the Sunday Times today

Hard to believe that Dory Previn was 86 when she died earlier this year: some of us still think of her as a curly-permed 1970s singer-songwriter.

Our own Kate Dimbleby — a free spirit who dabbles in every shade of jazz, blues and pop — revisits her legacy against the backdrop of Naadia Sheriff’s understated piano.

Her ultra-intelligent choices range from 20 Mile Zone, a droll portrait of a woman on the edge, to the almost painfully vulnerable The Lady with the Braid. Dimbleby is a terrific interpreter of female nonconformists — her stage portrait of Peggy Lee was a cult hit.

If her Dory P is quieter, it is no less atmospheric.
