Eric,
   I too listened to that disc today and I definitely heard Gladys, Etta
James and Dinah.  I loved how the arrangements are pretty defined yet her
blues, pop and jazz influences come through, sometimes in the same verse.

Jae Sinnett mentioned how much he liked Robin's new CD. I'm listening to 
it now for the first time. It does sound good.

Just a thought, when I listened to her sing "I Want To Be Loved" I was 
reminded of another vocalist that I really like. Just on that one tune 
she reminds me of Gladys Knight. Just curious to see if anyone else 
heard what I'm hearing.
