This review is from: From The Plantation To The Penitentiary (Audio CD)
Like a previous reviewer I'm generally not one for vocal jazz, but this is unlike any that I've ever heard. I simply can't imagine a better voice (or lyrics). I generally have a hard time with the amount of vocals on jazz albums - in my opinion there always seems to be much or they try to be too powerful, but this is perfect. There's not a verse that doesn't fit in exactly where it should. The vocals compliment the music and vice versa, just as they should. The music itself is very tight and dripping with mood. This is a truly excellent album. I'll be on the lookout for more by Jennifer Sanon, and I'm already looking forward to what Wynton treats us to next.
