Deanna Bogart: Timing is Everything
Mix blues, soul, and R&B together, add some sassy spice, and you have Deanna Bogart. Bogart has been a consistent presence in the blues world, having released albums on Blind Pig, Shanachie and Lightyear (to name a few); now she has taken full control of her career and artistry and formed her own label in order to release what is without question one of her finest recordings.

This album takes the listener on a journey of Bogart’s various influences, taking the approach of keeping the live feel and vibe that makes her one of the most entertaining and lively artists on the scene today. Keeping you feet still during the opening salvo, the funky and Latin tinged “Still The Girl in the Band,” or the equally rhythmic and poignant "(I’d Rather Be Sad) in Las Vegas.” Other highlights include touching “Soulache (For Alix),” which has a hint of The Carpenters' touch for pop ballads; and the soul styled “I’ll Be Missing You,’ only missing the backing vocals of the Rayettes.

Timing is Everything was recorded in a studio, but it was done keeping the feel of a live performance. This is the best non-live live recording of 2003.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
