Carmen Lundy: Something To Believe In (2003)

Carmen Lundy: Something To Believe In No stars How we rate: our writers tend to review music they like within their preferred genres.

The message here is one of love. Love for all the good things that we believe in. Love for what makes us happy, and love for what keeps us on track.

Carmen Lundy’s rich alto voice brings jazz to her audience with clarity and balance. Her seamless phrasing gives the listener assurance that each lyric’s message rings true. As an artist dedicated to interpreting creative works, Lundy doesn’t dabble in superficial vocal acrobatics. That kind of stunt can be left for those singers, usually found in pop and R&B circles, who only want to show their wares. Lundy’s concern is for the message. She sings these love poems from the heart.

Regina Carter and Mark Shim add colorful interludes, while complementing Lundy’s purpose. She and Shim appear as long-lost lovers on “Vu Ja De” with freely interspersed phrases that produce an enchanted conversation. Lundy and Carter exchange glad tidings on “A Gift of Love” to reflect the miracle of birth and how much it means to us all year long.

Carmen Lundy is equally at home interpreting golden standards as she is creating new adventures. The common denominator is her high regard for genuineness of spirit. Her love message shines though like a beacon.
