Bettye Lavette Celebrates At Cafe Carlyle
Bettye Lavette made me cry more than once during the opening show of her run at The Carlyle. She is among the very highest echelon of vocalists – a masterful interpreter who fully inhabits each song she sings. The show Wednesday January the 28th served as an album release party for her latest – Worthy, produced by Joe Henry – and was extra special as Ms. Lavette’s birthday, falling on the 29th. kicked in at midnight.
She is also fun as hell to hang out with!
