Brandee Younger: Soul Awakening

Read "Soul Awakening" reviewed by Serena Antinucci

Sembrerebbe quasi che Brandee Younger abbia preferito ripetitive udienze private con la luna, prima di decidere se liberare il suo ultimo lavoro discografico. Forse, in questi dialoghi confidenziali, la luna le avrà svelato i misteri antichi del mondo, della musica, donandole immagini uniche piene di incanto. A queste è rimasta aggrappata per lunghi sette anni, prima ...

Jazzmeia Horn: Love & Liberation

Read "Love & Liberation" reviewed by Ian Patterson

It's a big step for any singer, the move from interpreter of jazz standards to songwriter. And when you've been Grammy-nominated for a debut album of covers, as Jazzmeia Horn was with A Social Call (Prestige, 2017), the temptation must be to carry on in the same vein. Horn, however, clearly has greater ambition, as the ...

Brandee Younger: Soul Awakening

Read "Soul Awakening" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic

Sure the recording for Soul Awakening was completed in 2013, but we are more than fortunate that harpist Brandee Younger and producer/bassist Dezron Douglas have chosen now to free this music from the vaults.

Jazzmeia Horn: A Social Call

Read "A Social Call" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

L'impatto di Jazzmeia Horn sulla scena vocale afro-americana ricorda quello recente di Cécile McLorin Salvant e di Gregory Porter. Già vincitrice nel 2013 e nel 2015 di due prestigiosi concorsi statunitensi, la 26enne cantante texana ha evidenziato in questo debutto le sue ricche doti: vibrante tensione emotiva dai chiari rimandi blues e soul, scura voce contralto ...

George DeLancey: George DeLancey

Read "George DeLancey" reviewed by James Nadal

During the golden age of the big bands, composers wrote with the entire ensemble as a singular voice, with the soloist (and solos) connected to the concept of the song as a whole. The leading exponent of this era was Duke Ellington, whose writing was built around that awareness; and his songs have withstood the test ...
