Juliet Kelly: Delicious Chemistry (2005)

By Published: | 3,668 views
Juliet Kelly: Delicious Chemistry Contemporary jazz vocalist Juliet Kelly remains accessible in her quest to interpret original material that members from all factions of the jazz world can enjoy. Convincing in her interpretations, yet laid-back with a comfortable groove, she delivers each original song with subtle passion.

The extensive range of Kelly's contralto voice lets her reach out with open arms and a genuine, heartfelt demeanor. She surrounds herself with a fine band of like-minded jazz artists who deliver original concepts on target. Their sound remains contemporary while weaving an exotic thread through its presentation.

On "Delicious Chemistry," she transports the listener to a distant land through acoustic sounds and a heartfelt appeal. Her "I Wish You Love" is performed as an intimate vocal/guitar duet. "Black Rose," a tribute to Nina Simone, carries a smooth jazz texture while spreading its message with comfortable overtones. "Unicorn Dream" represents a winning formula with its combination of Kelly's passionate message and her band's acoustic accompaniment. Together, they're both exotic and convincing.

With "Parallel Universe" and several other selections, the singer weaves a comfortable tango pattern into her contemporary interpretation. It's her secret ingredient. The tango effect matches her vocal delivery and keeps the session both exotic and alive. Recommended, Delicious Chemistry appeals to a wide audience.
