Kate McGarry: Girl Talk

AAJ Italy Staff By

Sign in to view read count
Girl Talk è il sesto album della vocalist del Massachusetts, Kate McGarry, che ritorna sulla scena discografica rivisitando dieci standard della canzone americana, avvalendosi della produzione del marito chitarrista Keith Ganz. Il talento vocale della McGarry viene fuori nel blues ovattato della title-track, mentre brani come "I Just Found Out About Love" e "It's a Wonderful World" ci fanno rivivere atmosfere swing degne di fumosi club anni '50 mettendo in mostra la perfetta sintonia e il senso di partecipazione di tutti i musicisti.

Nel classico della bossanova "O Cantador," di Dori Caymmi, troviamo la calda voce di Kurt Elling che crea un'atmosfera molto coinvolgente unendosi, senza sopraffare, a quella della leader. "The Man I Love" si fa apprezzare per le atmosfere eteree create dall'organo hammond di Gary Versace e dalla chitarra di Keith Ganz e nel finale si sente tutto il pathos della voce della McGarry. Momenti incantati in "Looking Back" con un arrangiamento unplugged per solo voce e chitarra con ritmi latini nella cover di "Charade," di Henry Mancini, caratterizzata dal contributo caldo e passionale delle percussioni e da un assolo di Hammond.

In quest'opera, il pop e il folk uniti a fluidità jazz e improvvisazione vivacizzano il disco, rendendone piacevole l'ascolto. Girl Talk è un album che allieterà i fans di questa vocalist che, in 20 anni di carriera, ha sempre saputo mantenere classe e coerenza.
