Lucy Woodward – Hooked! (2010)

“Hooked!” showcases Woodward’s engaging, expressive vocals and witty, insightful songwriting on such memorable originals as “He Got Away,” “Purple Heart,” and “Slow Recovery.” Another highlight is “Another Woman,” especially written for Lucy by admirer Nellie McKay, who lends her harmony vocals to the track. Woodward’s gifts as an interpreter of outside material are showcased on her readings of such vintage tunes as the obscure Peggy Lee number “Sans Souci,” Hoagy Carmichael’s 1930s pop standard “Stardust” and “I Wan’na Be Like You (The Monkey Song),” originally sung by Louis Prima in Disney’s The Jungle Book.
