The group is named Autumn in Augusta and the volume is entitled Songs My Mama Would Like (LMS 1263). This is a well-chosen program of classics like "Wayfaring Stranger", "House of the Rising Sun", an arrangement of the "Song of Joy" from Beethoven's 9th--"Joyful, Joyful", "How Can I Keep From Singing?" by Robert Wadsworth Lowry, and Leroy Carr's "How Long, How Long Blues".
Ms. Smith has soul and finesse and the trio gives her the right setting for her heartfelt set. She can belt it out and she does.
