Few singers have the emotional depth and versatility of Abbey Lincoln. With a voice capable of evoking the joys and pains of life, she has carved a niche as a singer, songwriter, and storyteller for over 40 years. As a singer, she avoided 'grandstanding' and rarely, if ever, improvised; she did, however, wring a lyric for it's emotional content, while bringing a searing, dramatic quality to the musical line.
