Washington, D.C.- based jazz vocalist Hazel Mitchell-Bell unveils her new album Sack Full of Dreams with a release in May 2021. On this project, she partners with pianist, arranger and producer Vince Evans and a team of accomplished musicians from the Washington, D.C. area. This second independently produced album reflects a heightened level of artistry and a broadening of repertoire for the already popular vocalist. Liner notes by jazz journalist John Murph sweeten the pot by supplying a wealth of information about the tunes found in their 12- track offering. The recording is a collection of Mitchell-Bell’s interpretations of jazz, blues and R&B favorites made famous by world-renowned musicians Nina Simone, Aretha Franklin, Luther Vandross and others. She also embarks on new territory by interpreting tunes from the Broadway repertoire. By adding trumpet, saxophone, guitar, and a string section to their core band, she and Evans present listeners with a fresh reimagining of these beloved tunes.
