In COURTNEY MORRIS'  "So Far, So Good" she belts her heart
out and sells the song with a personality that demands you have fun. 
The voice is powerful, and at times a touch too loud, but this crowd
pleaser has you in the palm of her hand before she sings a note.  Her
performance is high energy, and her patter genuine and amusing. 
Songs like "I'm Not My Mother," "Painting My Kitchen,"  and
"Broadway Boogie Woogie" highlight her mastery of comedy; and
her diversity is apparent in the country-western version of "Heads
Carolina, Tails California" and a medley of  60's songs.  The title
"So Far, So Good" is an apt description of her debut cabaret effort. 
I look forward to hearing more from Courtney Morris.
And check out Mama Rose's.  The converted brownstone is a comfy,
spacious room with a great sound system and professional lighting.
