Short Stories on CD

"Butler is a unique package....Her voice, a smooth, slightly husky alto that can slide up to thrilling high notes, has a comfortable, soothing timbre; but she changes attitudes from song to song with the facility of a trained actor, striking a balance somewhere between the silken elegance of Norah Jones and the edginess of Patricia Barber....I marveled at the spell this singer could weave....recalling similar moments listening to Billie Holiday, Betty Carter, Laura Nyro and Joni Mitchell." --John Swenson, United Press International (upi.com) 'In her first release, Bett Butler...takes us on a jazz journey that blends a host of styles into a sound that is meticulously constructed, both musically and lyrically....one of the most exquisite voices since Minnie Riperton....sparkling vibrato and impressive range and control....Her poetry and vision, combined with keyboard prowess and sterling vocalizations, amuse and entertain track after track....This CD is a sheer joy to listen to.'--Robert Lindquist, editor, Singer Magazine "Bett's lyrics are optimism in the face of adversity, strength in the face of tragedy: sometimes humorous, sometimes touching, always elegant, never superfluous."--Hannah Castellaw, Womanspace "A songwriter with many levels...great sense of timing and humor...smart, simple words layered upon solid rhythm...a considered work."--Jonathan Marcus, The Current 'This session confirms Butler's uncommon compositional and performing ability to work successfully with diverse musical themes and within a variety of frameworks. Recommended.'--Dave Nathan, All Music Guide "Bett Butler is one of my favorite singers...a beautiful woman with a stunning voice...cool, smooth, and well-versed in jazz and R&B." --Jim Beal Jr., San Antonio Express-News "How can such a big voice come from such a tiny lady?....Watching Bett perform...is a lesson in crowd control. Her voice, her control of the ivories, and her interplay with the audience combine to weave a spell that makes you hers....Bett Butler is a gem." --Mike Hood, The Current 'A sensitive songcrafter and beautiful performer....foxy and feisty, with a crisp and sometimes seductive voice which is distinguished by some unusual phrasing....Her keyboard work is effortless and silk-smooth....' --Sam Kendrick, Action Magazine.
