Yep Jim, I have heard her and I concur she is a wonderful singer and I do 
listen objectively. I continue to play and enjoy her CD but to put her in 
the league of Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughan? Come on man...... Yes, I've 
heard Ella and Sarah as well but Roberta's not at that level.
Maybe in a few years.
I'm sure Hank and others think very highly of her but I would doubt none of 
them went that far. I mean what can someone say to that outside of the fact 
it's an opinion but I will say while I respect your opinions Jim this is a 
stretch far beyond my sense of understanding.
