All hail the queen
It is with great sadness and gratitude that the musical community of New Orleans reflects on the life and mourns the passing of Leigh Harris. Known to many as Little Queenie, Leigh was a guiding force for me and is surely responsible for more than a little of my acceptance and success in New Orleans. She will be missed by everyone who was lucky enough to hear and feel and know her. The Gershwins could very well have written this song especially for us. It was my good fortune to record it with her in 2000.

Debbie Davis and Josh Paxton
Private Function, Washington, DC
"Debbie Davis is generally recognized as possessing one of the most beautiful voices in a city filled with talented singers. Her warm, full voice illuminates the nooks and crannies of these songs with an emotional resonance that reminds listeners of such mistresses of restrained passion as Astrud Gilberto and Betty Carter. She’s also capable of letting that big voice carry her into mainstream pop territory, where her saucy delivery is more reminiscent of numerous big band vocalists and the great Cass Elliot. Every gesture is priceless."
