Chris Bennett: Until The End Of Time

Jim Santella By

Sign in to view read count
From her web site , smooth jazz artist Chris Bennett can be heard singing hot, steamy vocals that spell Romance with a capital R. Her form of communication appeals to a broad audience. Familiar chestnuts and fresh originals bring the listener out from the cold and into the living room for an evening of relaxed pleasure. This, Bennett's fourth album, relies on a mellow supporting cast to keep each song in its natural perspective. Eric Marienthal, Kleber Jorge, Arturo Velasco and Alec Milstein provide sensual phrases and cheerful melodies. In fact, it's the melody that takes over this session and drives its passive message home. The listener is invited to relax, sit back, and enjoy. While Bennett is at times overshadowed by the sheer volume of her accompaniment, her kittenish purrs and breathy sighs keep the album's focus intact. After all, romance should center on quiet moments. Aren't nonverbal forms of communication usually more effective than spoken attempts? Don't we judge with all of our senses? In the same manner, Chris Bennett offers a quiet storm that thrives on gentle repetition. Jazz should appeal to a broad audience. This time out, it's to let the audience relax and forget about more powerful forms of passion that rule the world.
