"It doesn't take but a few phrases of a song to hear that singer Pat Tandy has something special. Take the way she applied her glowing, rich voice to the blues classic "Early in the Mornin'" to close her show with reedman David Aaron's trio at Johnny's on the Green in Short Hills. Each line had so much vocal and rhythmic juice you couldn't help but get with the music, move to it -- as the statuesque Tandy did, dancing as she sang. Tandy has lived in Newark most of her life and performs there. One of the many styles of music she reveres is the blues. Tandy works with her longtime band: saxophonist Tommy Gryce, organist Radam Schwartz, and drummer Gordon Lane.
