On the singer-pianist’s latest, Glad Rag Doll, producer T Bone Burnett surrounds her with a comfy-thick blanket of guitars (Marc Ribot’s reverberating chords ring through clearly). Song choices lean toward Tin Pan Alley pop and the occasional R&B tune, such as an enthralling cover of Doc Pomus’ devastating ”Lonely Avenue.” The result brings out the warmth in a voice that’s been chilly, verging on aloof, at times. She calls this her ”song and dance record”; I’d call it her nimble, witty, change-of-pace record. B+
