3 Big Releases from Connor Ray Music Coming This Month

Adrianna Marie - Double Crossing Blues

Release Date: May 19th, 2015
“Adrianna Marie sings with all the expressiveness, sass,  and class of stylists like Dinah Washington, Little Esther, and Helen Humes.  From the rocking R&B of Esther’s “Cherry Wine” to a lowdown treatment of  Humes’s “I Ain’t In The Mood,” she is splendid. In front of the spectacular, big  band version of Louis Jordan’s swinging, minor “Is You Is Or Is You Ain’t My  Baby,” or the reading of Billie Holiday’s jazzy “Sugar,” Adrianna Marie is pure sophistication… she is by turns steamy and reserved. In every setting and mood,  Adrianna Marie and the Groovecutters, provide expert ensemble work and memorable solos, are  picture-perfect'.
