Blue A. in NY Daily News Top Ten

New York Daily News - Music - Jim Farber: Getting a yearful http://www.nydailynews.com/entertainmen ... 6073c.html
6. Anjani Thomas, "Blue Alert"

Leonard Cohen's backup singer (as well as his lover) ransacked the great bard's notebooks to unearth stray, leftover lyrics, which, it turns out, tower over most other writers' finest lines. Thomas then matched Cohen's words to her own melodies of woe. The combination of her blue-hued voice and jazzy tunes with Cohen's impeccable verse created literature you can hum.

I saw that in the paper this morning and was very happy for Anjani and Leonard. The Daily News is kind of a lowbrow paper and I surprised to see it there.
