A Social Call      Jazzmeia Horn

She’s a unique jazz vocalist, she plays with phrasing, she scats. Nice vocal tone, it’s fine.

Bad Ass And Blind      Raul Midón

I’m not sure what this is doig here – it wasn’t particularly jazzy – the songwriting was mediocre, the production crowded – not much to like about this one. Try “Pedal to the Metal.

Dreams And Daggers      Cécile McLorin Salvant

A double album of a not very pleasant sounding vocalist. Knock yourself out, I am not making it through this entire thing. It gets better as it goes along – recorded live. Still not my thing. STOP CLAPPING AFTER SOLOS.
