The widely acclaimed Canadian actress and blues songstress Jackie Richardson recently stepped into the role of Alberta Hunter in Cookin’ at the Cookery and joins co-star Janice Lorraine in talking about the show and their history of performing it across Canada and the United States.
Joining them is William Knowles on piano as they give us a taste of ‘Downhearted Blues’ and ‘I’m Having a Good Time’. Janice, who plays many roles in the show, gives you an intro to Barney the club manager, little Alberta, Oscar Hammerstein II, and her Louis Armstrong that has critics raving.
