Laura Campisi: Double Mirror

Read "Double Mirror" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

Contemporary jazz vocalists tend to fall into two camps, those who follow the jazz singer tradition of Ella, Billie, Sarah and the other icons and those who experiment with their sound and repertoire. The latter group includes people like Elizabeth Shepherd, Katie Bull and Rebecca Martin. Laura Campisi is another name you can add to that ...


Katie Bull: All Hot Bodies Radiate

Read "All Hot Bodies Radiate" reviewed by Franz A. Matzner

A raucous concoction, Katie Bull's All Hot Bodies Radiate bursts with energy, its verbal and musical contortions devoted to a deceptively cacophonous mix of levity, seriousness, playfulness, and avant abstractions.

Artfully balanced, Bull merges spoken-word delivery and singing to deliver her poem-lyrics in a style that cleverly evokes the best coffeehouse traditions, without being ...


Katie Bull: All Hot Bodies Radiate

Read "All Hot Bodies Radiate" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Quinto album per la cantante e autrice newyorchese Katie Bull, le cui coordinate espressive spaziano da una vocalità jazz non eccessivamente ortodossa a infiltrazioni di matrice contemporaneo-colta (quella sorta di recitarcantando che segna quasi tutte le sue sortite), senza eludere del tutto refoli di ascendenza per così dire prog-song.

L'interlocutore privilegiato della voce, ...

Jazz Is Obama

Read "Jazz Is Obama" reviewed by Katie Bull

The musicians I am drawn to are players who “open up." They carry the torch for the freedom of infinite possibility. They have unbounded imagination. They see a musical chart as a map into unknown territory. Not unlike healthy law, the form of a jazz vocal chart can make or break the democracy of an improvisation. ...


Katie Bull: The Story, So Far

Read "The Story, So Far" reviewed by Jim Santella

A genuine jazz singer, Katie Bull pulls no punches when it comes to interpreting original material. She tosses in a few classic songs on The Story, So Far while portraying lyrics convincingly, scat singing with natural ease, adding a sincere blues texture to each selection, all of it coming from the bottom of her heart.

Katie Bull: Love Spook

Read "Love Spook" reviewed by Donald Elfman

There seem to be more singers today than ever before, but along with that development come a few who are turning around the notion of just what a singer does and can do. Katie Bull is called a multimedia artist, and that notion informs her every note here. She knows the repertoire and she knows the ...
