A Review about the CD, Amazing

"Amazing is a fitting title for this album. Her latest release amounts to a wonderful, sensuous journey across 13 tracks that reveal a generous soul that has known levels of both dizzying highs and bone weary lows in emotional relationships and she is more than capable of putting them in a song. There are very few vocalists on the scene today that can match her power or imagination when she interprets a song.

In a world that was fair, she would already have Grammys and other music awards all over her shelves but, as we all know, the world is not a fair place. Maybe this album will change that. One thing that stands out on this album is the variety of styles that are incorporated in it. Power ballads, punchy, jazz influenced gems, there’s even one in Italian, she really covers a lot of territory on this one.

Production on the album is near perfect, everything is matched with her vocals and surprises linger around every corner. She works so well with percussionists with such critical timing and ability that she can stair step into a crescendo and make it sound effortless, no easy feat. With a range like hers, it allows her to genre-bend at will and it happens a lot in this album. She’s not locked in by a specific style nor limited in her ability to cross in and out of vocal spectrum allowing her to push boundaries out of her way.

And then there’s the writing, most of my favorite songs on this album are written by her, “Your Place”, “Better Than Well”, ”Driver’s Seat”, “My Dear”, “Jetstream”, just to name a few and all are keepers. She is definitely a triple threat, singer, writer and an excellent producer. She just flat kills. That’s all there is to it.

And finally, I want to mention the musicians and singers on this release because they definitely deserve kudos for the contributions they made, you can tell by listening that there was a lot of work and love put into this project, it shows.
