Album Description

Gina Loves Jazz, Matthias Kirsch What a relief. And a joy. Dee Bell starts off her new album “Lins, Lennox & Life” with the wonderful Ivan Lins composition “By Chance (Acaso)”, a hopeful, soothing tune which is perfectly sung by the unobtrusive and calming voice of the Indiana-born singer. She easily won me over by the way she phrases the two words “by chance”. Her husky voice, tender at the same time, sometimes reminding me of Anita O’Day, seems to be the ideal vehicle for the Brazilian composer’s tunes. It’s an amazingly sympathetic and gracious instrument she calls her own. She can be light and breezy, floating over and around “After The Storm (Depois Dos Temporais)”, effectively and expertly arranged by Marcos Silva who also plays keys on the album. I’ve known her music and artistry since her two 80s albums on Concord Records, “Let There Be Love” and “One By One” which featured Stan Getz and Tom Harrell and then she somehow disappeared from recording until she released her “Sagacious Grace” album in 2011 and “Silva.Bell.Elation” four years later.
