Kari Gaffney: Angel Eyes Once every generation an artist comes along who transcends a particular style of music and broadens its appeal to listeners of all stripes. For vocal jazz, that artist is undoubtedly Kari Gaffney. Angel Eyes, Gaffney’s sexy, sultry release, illuminates songs of the classic songbook, as well as a twist of some of the not so obvious. Her rendition of "Walkin' After Midnight" promised intrigue—I wasn't sure how she might pull this Patsy Cline signature song off. After hearing Gaffney's approach, I fell in love. Gaffney’s ability to take a song and fill it with heartfelt emotion and rhythmic sensibility will be the cornerstone of her success. The captivating beauty and purity of her voice appears at ever turn. It's tantalizing to consider what Gaffney will put together for her next release.
