Carmen Lundy: Old Devil Moon

Jim Santella By

Sign in to view read count
Primarily an acoustic session, Carmen Lundy’s latest album presents her clear, expressive alto voice in the company of complementary soloists Frank Foster, Randy Brecker and Bob Mintzer. With Billy Childs and Santi DeBriano backing her on most tracks, the jazz singer weaves through lush ballads, a few original tunes, several rhythmic adventures, and intricate blues-based stories. Lundy’s singing presence is so full of confidence and enthusiasm that she charms the listener right out of his or her shoes. Duke Ellington’s "In a Sentimental Mood" oozes with a searing passion, while Donny Hathaway’s "Flying Easy" trips rhythmically around syncopated percussion, and the title tune spins around a Latin jazz arrangement quite full of the proper spirit. Highly recommended.
