Sitting upright, moving gently to the rhythm, he works with the chords with colorful effects yet I appreciate the short length of his solos. The bass player hunches over on a stool. Like the musician, the bass lines remain unobtrusive throughout the evening — on time but adding little.
From behind, the drummer sparkles, hitting an occasional offbeat and sending shimmering crashes at the end of a soloist's phrase. AH the way in back, only the drummer's shoulders and head are visible to me. His hair is lightening but he shows no signs of age on his fee. From behind square wire-rimmed glasses, he looks to one side, tilting his head to listen to the rhythm.
He seems to savor the sounds as he makes them. Even during his short solos he seems thoughtful. The pianist introduces Lil Howard as "your lady and mine. She is not a large woman, she is of medium height with a sturdiness about her. As she walks up to the microphone, the light catches a bit of frost on her hair. She is not young but she never stands still long enough for one to venture a guess at her age.
Her skin is deep brown. Her eyes embrace the crowd. Glancing at the bar and then at the. The drummer taps the snare a couple times. With Lil up front, the audience takes notice. She catches people's eye, nods slightly, looking away before you can be sure she was ever looking. The pianist runs through the changes and one by one the others join in. Lil waits until they come back around to the top and sings.
Her voice is clear and strong from the beginning. She sounds a bit like Nancy Wilson but less subtle and more muscular. She works with the jazz melodies in a peculiar way — simplifying at times.

She sings the lyrics and the saxophonist timidly echoes a line during a pause.
Then, after she finishes the verse, she points to him and he begins his solo. Lil takes over the stage — dancing to the music when she isn't singing it. She delivers the songs with one hand raised above her, or while pointing at the audience. Towards the end of the first set, Lil pauses to catch her breath and to announce the next piece.
She tells us that she wants to sing her hit song from — the one that sold over a million copies. It is a duet called "La-te-da" that used to be sung by Billy and Lilly. But now, she says, it's just Lil. The song is a fifties pop tune. Its hop-skip beat is in. Lil shimmies as she sings "cha-cha-cha" and the older man who helped set up joins in. In between sets, Lil sits at several different tables. People move near her. They lean closer at the tables she sits at or walk across the room to whisper something to her.
I catch her at a pause in her conversation and I make a request. I'd love to do that. The saxophonist seems more alert. His solos have energy. Kids Shoes. Newsletter 0. Shop Women's Looks.
