Funky Ella, with Leslie Lewis, has achieved an admirable tour de force by making us rediscover some works that are among the favorites of all time. Suddenly, Funky Ella brings them up to date with new interpretations, great arrangements, and, above all, with well-chosen talented musicians. With her unmatched voice, Leslie Lewis can do whatever she wants, and anything she does with it is done with the best musical taste, whether in style or through the use of her wonderful vocal instrument.
