REVIEW:
JODY THOMPSON, Sunday Mirror 7/10/2007
GABRIELLE – CAUGHT LIVE! Ronnie Scott’s London

IT’S astonishing to think it’s 14 years ago that soul star Gabrielle rode to the top of the charts with Dreams. My, how time flies.
Since then, we’ve had various pretenders to the title best female British soul star. But on the evidence of Gabrielle’s first live gig in four years, Amy Winehouse, Joss Stone, Corinne Bailey Rae and Jamelia better beware.
Gabrielle’s voice, like double cream spiked with whisky, hints at greats like Ella Fitzgerald and Eartha Kitt and is the perfect vehicle for her Motown-inflected pop tunes.
Songs from her new album Always thrill, but it’s still songs like Give Me A Little More Time and the heart-tugging Rise that really hit the spot. Gabrielle is back.
