“With an ensemble that includes fine piano, understated guitar, and classy trumpet and sax, Donna Greene & The Roadhouse Daddies have the basis to do justice to standards ‘Lover Man’ and ‘Baby Get Lost’ and the zip to pull off rocking chestnuts ‘Mess Around’ and ‘You Can Have My Husband.’ Originals ‘Shoe Boy’ and the title track to A Girl’s Gotta Have a Little Pleasure (Dixie Blue Records) swing and jump, respectively. An impressive singer, the sultry Greene more than holds her own in present -- and historial -- company...
