Yes she does, and I can't let the previously-unknown-to-me lady go with just one:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e2PUhbN99Jc << if this doesn't take you away to some special place, then you have a bigger sack o' woe than I can imagine
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aAuvGaBSZy0 < she duets well too

Superb clips my musicologist friend!!!!! I enjoyed all of them from the Segovian flamenco piece , Eric Satie's famous melody for Gymnopedie,(side bar ...Satie was ahead of his time ....quirky fact...he ate only white food, cauliflower, bread, rice, ...lol), the remarkable duet...man she CAN SING ! the adagio, and the finale of the traditional Parranda ! ...very nice!

Bit of an overstatement to bestow the title musicologist--I'm just a guy that likes all kindsa music and has need of sharing--"music nut" is closer, I think. Not pooh-poohing--I just know what I am.
Now when I think of guitarists that are tasteful and restrained but always genuinely jazz albeit with a funky edge, Mr. Dupree and Eric Gale come immediately to mind, with Pat Martino not trailing far behind. Mr. Gale had a wonderful career before cancer cut him down in his prime: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eric_Gale Not to be a knot-head one-upper but here's Mr. Martino on the same song (what great bones it has!): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8q742ZgZC28 << backed by the superior Joey D. on B-3 and rhythm mate Byron Landham, with the under-rated John Scofield. Hardly gets better and I've heard this trio do this live in a funky Philly venue, with another terrif local sax player. What a night!

John Scofield is a guitar giant IMHO !!!! I have always liked him! Must have been a great gig in Philly , Jazz! My memorable jazz concert was seeing legendary vibraphonist Milt Jackson and on a separate occasion Earl Fatha Hines!..... sorry I digress!
