THE SUNDAY TIMES - REVIEW, 13 MAY 2012:
"Hard to believe that Dory Previn was 86 when she died earlier this year: some of us still think of her as a curly-permed 1970s singer-songwriter.
Our own Kate Dimbleby — a free spirit who dabbles in every shade of jazz, blues and pop — revisits her legacy against the backdrop of Naadia Sheriff’s understated piano.
Her ultra-intelligent choices range from 20 Mile Zone, a droll portrait of a woman on the edge, to the almost painfully vulnerable The Lady with the Braid. Dimbleby is a terrific interpreter of female nonconformists — her stage portrait of Peggy Lee was a cult hit.
If her Dory P is quieter, it is no less atmospheric."

ABOUT THE ALBUM:
A collaboration between Kate Dimbleby ('undoubtedly one of Britain’s finest female Jazz singers.' Broadway World) and Naadia Sheriff ("Dazzling pianist” The Times) exploring the extraordinary songbook of cult favourite Dory Previn, the queen of 70's confessional songwriters who died on Valentine’s Day this year, 40 years after the release of her most successful album Mythical Kings and Iguanas.
Previn, who was married to composer André Previn until he left her for Mia Farrow, used her extraordinary tragic life story as material for her often hilarious, touching and musically brilliant songs.
In 2010, Kate performed Dory Previn’s most famous song “Lady with the Braid” every night for five weeks as part of her live show at the New End Theatre in Hampstead. The song and Kate’s version of it got such a reaction that she decided to explore Previn’s work further.
“Beware of Young Girls” is the result. A unique collaboration between Kate and pianist Naadia Sheriff. Dory’s songs explore themes of sexuality, therapy and religion with humour and raw honesty. To this Kate and Naadia bring their own musicianship, experience and personality.
'One of the most versatile singers on the jazz-blues circuit.' The Times
'A shimmering vocal versatility...Kate has the musical talent and jewel-eyed confidence to guarantee an audience a good time' London Evening Standard
'I think I’m in love… It was said about Fred and Ginger, "She gave him sex and he gave her class." Well, Kate Dimbleby has both already and it is a killer combination.' The Scotsman
'Dimbleby is an impressive and talented vocalist, formed both of strong technique and instinctive understanding... There are moments of great depth too, particularly with Dory Previn’s painful The Lady with the Braid' The Stage
