According to All About, "Jazz vocalist Miss Justine (Justine Keyes) is a Philadelphia phenomenon... her unique mastery of the jazz idiom, is so completely faithful to the music that it seems to run through her rather than be "performed" in any artificial sense of that term. Thus, Justine is a "natural" in several respects. And this is reflected in her singing. The result is a unique jazz experience that has universal meaning and appeal." Miss Justine has worked with Shirley Scott, Ray Charles, Keter Betts, Al Grey, Butch Ballard, Bootsie Barnes, Don Patterson, Billy Eckstine, Kenny Barron, McCoy Tyner, Lionel Hampton, Johnny Hartman and her musical mentor for over fifteen years, the late pianist Gerald Price. Here discography includes: "Tasty" and the more recent, "The Many Moods of Miss Justine" both on Dreambox Media.
