"Baby Jane Dexter may be the most talented singer within a time-honored genre of cabaret performer."-- Stephen Holden, The New York Times, December 1997.
There are moments when the leonine singer Baby Jane Dexter wields her potent two-part voice with the force of a weapon. One part is a cabaret tragedienne whose booming contralto plummets to depths where few female voices are capable of going. The other is a raucous rock "n" roll whose coarse vibrato spreads out (like Ronnie Spector's) into the vocal equivalent of a car zigzagging down the highway at 100 miles an hour.
