Michelle Lordi sings in a way that is uncommon today: simple, straightforward,
direct, and conveying the emotions in the way we all do: in our voice inflections.
No gimmicks. This is a style that emerged in the swing and cool jazz eras, a
strict adherence to the tune that virtually vanished as singers began to add
embellishments, scat, and too often a hysterical emotionality where personality
crowded out the melody…Cool uncorrupted understatement that swings is a way
to describe Lordi's vocal style in a nutshell. Her voice is clear and never shrill, her
diction is flawless, and she uses almost no vibrato
