Review

Carmen Lundy's follow-up recording to her extraordinary Jazz and the New Songbook: Live at the Madrid is a studio effort emphasizing her compositions co-written by various others. As her credentials as one of the premier present-day jazz vocalists grow, she retains a solidly grounded and supple voice coupled with her direct and vibrant presence on the 2000s scene. Her flexible, vivacious, and clear voice is evident to anyone who pays close attention. What Lundy does that sets her apart is tackle the challenge of creating an ambitious book of songs that go beyond convention while still retaining a contemporary feel without being overproduced. Accompanists are chosen for their taste level and ability to lift Lundy's spirits -- pianist Anthony Wonsey and guitarist Lage Lund loom large on this list. This sense of collaboration, from the songwriting to the instrumental arrangements, lifts the music to a lofty artistic level. These are not just songs of love, for or not for me me me, while the variety of sounds and styles tell you Lundy is truly thinking about how to change things up. In the more modern traditionalist jazz sense, Gossip is a hot, quick, quirky be-bopper, but that's about it. Modalities are explored in the free float to 6/8 to expansive scat and lyric of Lost in San Rafael, the John Coltrane like easy and carefree Walking Code Blue, and the low key, pensive 5/4 chart of the standard Nature Boy. In a more now-than-then style, the clock timed rhythm of the title cut, or the funky and electric inserts of Lil' Lu, which approach but never cross the line into a commercialized pop arena. Lundy also embraces Brazilian and Portuguese lyric elements, essential Afro-Cuban to Asian rhythms, a children's song, a New Year's wish, and a wedding vow tune. Something Happened Today, in duet with pianist Geri Allen, is the most personal statement on the disc, a spirit song of realization and transformation. Lundy's star continues to rise, and this CD is further evidence of that steady ascension. --Michael G. Nastos, AllMusic.com

Come Home is Carmen Lundy's amazing follow up to her exceptional recording titled Jazz and the New Songbook: Live at the Madrid. The set features 12 songs written or co-written by Lundy with the exception of Nature Boy. Among her brilliant accompanists are bassist Curtis Lundy, Geri Allen on piano, Lori Andrews on harp, Jason Evan Brown on drums, Anthony Wonsey on piano and Fender Rhodes, Lage Lund on guitar, Mayra Casales on percussion and support vocals, Machan on support vocals and Steve Turre on conch shells and trombone. Carmen Lundy's vocal rendition of Nature Boy is like the classic combination of fine wine and great music. Her melodic resonance, her tonality and the superior quality of her voice surrounded by an ensemble of talented musicians working as one is simply exceptional. Lundy realizes that much of her success relies on her art of collaboration and that is why her sets always ring true with outstanding artistic creations. Pianist Anthony Wonsey's customized comping on Come Home is the descriptive prose that livens the superb lyrics of this song. Further into the set pianist Geri Allen is uncompromising with her expressive power and lends this beauty to Lundy's dramatic vocals. Together, Allen and Lundy re-design the controversial and family-oriented themes they brilliantly present on My Wedding Vow, and Something Happened Today. Lil Lu, and of course the all-encompassing Gossip are also stellar examples of Lundy's flair for creative phrasings and telling an interesting story. Come Home is another superb documentation of Carmen Lundy's keen sense of the vitality and power of her music. It will move her devout listeners and her new audiences in the same way that her previous poetic lyrics and expressive music brought the meaning of each song into focus. Buy Come Home today. --Paula Edelstein, Sounds of Timeless Jazz

Wow! Carmen Lundy is a true original. Never sounding better, she embodies joy and passion in these new songs, songs which are at once complex yet beautifully simple. With her extraordinary band and guest artists including Geri Allen, the results are impeccable. In a word, "Come Home" is a MASTERPIECE!

She wraps it all in a package filled with her unique and spirited artwork, paintings depicting family and home. In today's vacuous pop culture, Carmen Lundy fills the void and grabs your heart and soul in a way that can't be denied. With unforgettable melodies, memorable lyrics, and a silky, rich voice that no other living vocalist can come close to, I can't put this record down. You won't be able to either...

Singing brilliantly & deep from her soul, look no further as Carmen Lundy is without doubt THE new reigning "Queen Of Jazz"...totally entrancing singer & composer of tremendous depth and dimension, this peerless singer is simply the finest to come along in the past twenty years and masterful new collection of original compositions (except for the hauntingly gorgeous & sublime "Nature Boy") is her finest to date! Opening magical gem "Lost In San Rafael" make it clear the lucky listener is in for the magical musical journey of a lifetime!
Stellar musicans frame loose and passionate vocals that are uniquely original filled with soulfulness that goes deep inside the lyrics painting vivid images that bring each classic original to life in a way not heard or experienced since the late and great Sarah Vaughan...Carmen is in charge and takes one on a wild ride with her enchanting voice yet technique never gets in the way of the story line, only enhancing the meaning of each great song with each being richly varied and fascinating...glorious set of incredible songs and performances is the ultimate! Don't miss the opportunity to see this amazing singer in concert when she comes your way...truly an original tour-de-force experience, sadly rare today in the world of music so don't miss Carmen Lundy In Concert!!!
Bravo Carmen & Co. & thank you for this blazing & amazing MASTERPIECE!!!

This rich tapestry of insightful songs is Carmen Lundy's most finest cd to-date. With her soulful voice full of passion, Carmen's introspectively written songs represent a new maturity and inner peace.

The infectious magic of "Lost In San Rafael" is captivating. Carmen's vocal in "Nature Boy" (the only song in the cd not written by Carmen) is hauntingly beautiful and certainly now is the definitive version. For a satisfying experience, listen to the richness of "Seductive Reasoning" (aka Portuguese title "Reflexo da Seducao") and the wisdom in the lyrics of "Gossip". (A live version of "Gossip" is available on You Tube.) Savor the complex work entitled "Lil' Lu". Reflect on the songs of depth: "Heart Of Gold", "Walking Code Blue", and "Something Happened Today".

You will be dazzled by Anthony Wonsey's hot ivory keys on "Heart Of Gold", "Gossip", and "Walking Code Blue". Don't miss the riveting guitar of Lage Lund on "Lost In San Rafael", "Heart Of Gold", "Gossip" and "Afrasia". Check out Curtis Lundy's dynamic bass notes on "Walking Code Blue" and "My Wedding Vow".

Having seen Carmen perform both "Afrasia" and "Come Home" live in concert, these songs have always been personal favorites of mine. You will find the entire collection of vocals deeply stirring yet sublimely satisfying. Sample these songs, if you please, but generously allow yourself the indulgence of the entire cd.

After her New American Songbook, which I love, this is another affirmation that Carmen Lundy is a fabulous singer and songwriter.
