Editorial Reviews

The internationally acclaimed, award-winning female African-American a cappella group Sweet Honey In The Rock has followed its adventurous spirit and undertaken the challenge of honoring some of the seminal songs that first inspired its unique blend of folk, blues, jazz, gospel and ethnic music in a concert presentation utilizing an instrumental backing trio for the first time in its career, now approaching its fourth decade. Upping the ante, the singers decided to perform this special program at New York s prestigious Jazz at Lincoln Center venue and to record their two-night appearance there.

In the opening moments of their new 2-CD 2013 release, A Tribute Live! Jazz at Lincoln Center, Sweet Honey member Ysaye Barnwell recites a roll-call of some of the great female African-American vocalists whose songs helped shape the group and comprise much of Tribute s repertoire, including Abbey Lincoln, Odetta, Billie Holiday, Nina Simone, Miriam Makeba, Carmen McRae, Bessie Smith, and Sarah Vaughan.

The songs on this recording, the band s first new release in six years and 22nd overall, are drawn from those two shows at Jazz at Lincoln Center s Rose Hall in April 2011. Adorned with new arrangements by Sweet Honey s members, there are jazz standards, gospel/civil rights anthems, Afro-centric songs, show tunes, blues, and a salsa-flavored original.

Sweet Honey In The Rock s distinctive swirl of a cappella vocals, encompassing waves of imaginative ensemble harmonies and occasional solo showcases, is heard unaccompanied, aside from the quintet s hand percussion, on about half of the songs. Interwoven throughout the presentation are the understated instrumental contributions of the trio nicknamed the Honey Men, who augment Sweet Honey s exhilarating, soulful voices and confident, genre-crossing dexterity.

Founded in 1973, Sweet Honey In The Rock has established itself as an inspiring, empowering musical force worldwide.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Tribute TO Sweet Honey March 9, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
It's been clear for decades that the women of this incredible group are each blessed with talent and skill. This album shows them in a light that will widen their appeal. It was no surprise that Sweet Honey's jazz chops are as good as ANYBODY'S. If you're going to cover MIriam, Nina, Odetta, and Abbey, you better bring it. And Sweet Honey brings it!! They stay true to their roots and step out to acknowledge the stars who lit the way. The keyboard, bass and drums backing them up are exactly the right dose and flavor. The only thing missing here is the wonderful Shirley Childress and her signing the music.

I love the music these ladies create and this is a wonderful collection of music. Sweet Honey makes music that makes you feel good but Also makes you think. If you get a chance to see them in concert it is well worth it and this live cd does a nice job capturing some of that experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweeter Honey December 30, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you belong to the tribe that loves, loves, loves these gifted, amazing women, then you might ask "What could be better?"

"Better" might not be precise, but having some jazz backups, and sensitive men sitting in at times, is a different kind of treat.

I don't really follow. Even though I did buy their recording many, many years ago. And I enjoyed them then.

If you are a fan of Sweet Honey in the Rock, this is a must have. OMG, wish I had been there, but since I couldn't be, this disc is the next best thing. Their rendition of the Makeba "choo choo" song is so energetic I'm bobbing my head now just thinking about it :)
