KJ Denhert is phenomenal. Her style and music epitomize laid back New York at its best. Her music is easy listening jazz, happy and emotional. She is one of those fantastic live acts, who give you goosebumps and make you fantasize that anything is possible, with their energy and ability. I personally believe that her recorded material does not do her live performances justice, so go listen to her live in New York if you can.
In addition to her great music, I remember being struck by how funny she was, and how she was able to control her audience with her humor and sassyness.
Go see her if you can. She can be found playing at 'The 55 bar' in New York's West village pretty regularly. It is a cosy venue and it is not expensive. We paid $5 to get in, but they do expect you to enjoy a drink or two with the music. They do not serve food. Get in early for the best seats.
