|Tara O'Grady - Good Things Come To Those Who Wait|
|Written by Will “The Thrill” Viharo|
Combining Billie Holiday’s gift for meticulous but effortlessly poetic phrasing with Anita O’Day’s swingin’ sassiness, June Christy’s cocktail coolness, Patsy Cline’s rural romanticism, and Sarah Vaughn’s sophisticated sultriness, New York jazz/blues singer Tara O’Grady is indeed a musical force of nature to reckon with, and I reckon you’ll indeed be snappin’, swingin’ ‘n’ swayin’ to her self-made slice of sonic sensuality Good Things Come to Those Who Wait. The independently produced album’s moniker perfectly reflects the uplifting nature of the original nifty numbers within, including the title tune and her other unique compositions such as “November Moon,” “Myth of Genius,” “Let Me Be Your Audrey,” “Steady Teddy,” “Goodnight Nora,” and “I Want to Go to There,” the autobiographical anthem for her recent cross-country road trip, sponsored by Chevrolet, in honor of a 1957 journey by her grandmother, traversing the same highways and byways.
