“...Thank you so much for the wonderful performance last night. Your reading of the Johnny Mercer lyrics was done with such a beautiful artistic sensitivity, and your narrations on the personal side of Johnny Mercer were quite informative, to say the least....High compliments go out to your band also, John, Stu, and Michael. My two friends really had a great time too-they are musicians also. In closing Thank You again Linda for inviting me to last night's event. I will catch you at Pete Millers and bring some friends to come out and support you.”

Sauces are classic and properly made. (Several dishes may be prepared in either northern or southern Vietnamese styles, spicy or mild.) I love this place: soft flattering lighting, carefully selected furnishings, real linens, and a relaxing exposure to a time long-past. Dinners like this could easily cost twice elsewhere."~ http://chicago.menupages.com/restaurants/edgewater-beach-cafe/

Q: As a jazz artist today, what do u find to be the most challenging obstacles to overcome?
A: Self promotion, being my own agent. It’s easy to write or talk about someone else’s achievements - it’s hard to toot ones own horn without feeling self conscious and uncomfortably egocentric. There are always the feelings of self doubt, the vague sense of being an impostor or something. If you have a second, Chicago Jazz Magazine recently published this "Getting To Know Vocalist Linda Solotaire" - let me know what you think. xx http://issuu.com/chicagojazzmagazine/docs/weeklynewsletter_01_01_13/49
