Akua Allrich: Uniquely Standard, Akua Allrich Live! ()

Download a free MP3 from Uniquely Standard, Akua Allrich Live!

"Uniquely Standard; Akua Allrich live!", ... was appropriately recorded at two Washington, D.C. clubs Bohemian Caverns and THEARC. It is here that she honed her variegated style and was given free reign to pursue the experimentation that has resulted in her signature mixture of traditional jazz, African rhythms, and modern stylization. This vivacious diversity is embodied in tracks like Nina Simones My Baby Just Cares for Me and Sinnerman, propulsive versions of Jol'Inkomo and Afro Blue, and the slyly sensuous original Wishful Thinking. Ultimately, however, what "Uniquely Standard; Akua Allrich live!" captures is the sheer joy and honesty that Allrich brings to the stage. Certainly, Allrich is a dedicated show person and a self-proclaimed ham. She knows what she is doing on stage and how to draw an audience into the palm of her hand. But what always bursts forth in her singing and interactions with her talented band-mates is the true love of music that drew her back to performing three years ago and continues to drive her to ever-new expressive territories. That joy permeates her latest release and buoys its effervescent character." Franz A. Matzner Writer and Jazz Columnist
