Editorial Reviews

Fellowship continues Lizz Wright's celebrated collaboration with acclaimed singer-songwriter Toshi Reagon, who co-produced the new album and wrote/performed on a number of tracks on Wright's previous release. The record features several traditional songs that Wright grew up with in church including "Amazing Grace," "Sweeping Through the City," and a gospel medley featuring "I've Got a Feeling" and "Power Lord." Wright also covers a number of songs by noted writers including "Presence of the Lord" by Eric Clapton and "In From the Storm" by Jimi Hendrix. Bernice Johnson Reagon performs on two tracks, including "I Remember, I Believe" which she composed. Lizz Wright, whom The Wall Street Journal calls "a thoughtful, sensitive soul," has received critical praise from Time Magazine, NPR, Ebony, Essence, New Yorker and Billboard, and her music is featured in several major television shows. Wright was born in the small town of Hahira, Georgia, to a local minister. She grew up traveling through the South singing with her parents and siblings. She first came to national attention in 2002 when she performed in a series of Billie Holiday tribute shows. Since then, she's released Salt (2003), Dreaming Wide Awake (2005) and The Orchard (2008), all three critical and fan favorites.

Her new CD just arrived today, and I must say it is quite good. I give it a solid B.

If you like gospel, you'll probably give the album a B+ because most of the songs on it are spirituals. I particularly enjoyed the gospel medley.

The rest of the album is an eclectic mix of originals, folksy soul, and even a couple of rock covers. Many of the tracks have nice guest vocal touches. There is no traditional jazz song on the album. This is ok, because I don't believe it would fit well into the theme of the CD.

As good as she sounds on the album, she sounds even better live. I saw her a few months ago and she completely blew me away. She has an incredible presence too. Make sure to see her live when she is performing near you.

Lizz Wright is making very powerful recordings - music that speaks from her heart. This one for me follows right on The Orchard's kind of revelatory expression from her. The album brings in a gospel influence, but it is a Lizz Wright album, not a gospel album. She is singing about who she is, what she knows and what inspires her. And so she's taken me from being curious to a fan to now, where I anxiously await anything she does.

Maybe time for a live album?

Fellowship also has wonderful contributions from other artists that the description names, and these enrich the listening all that much more. At first I thought the recording - the electronics ambience and general production - was a little too busy compared to her previous albums but I get it now. Sounds good.

I'm currently listening to Fellowship for the second time in a row after just getting in the mail. I've truly enjoyed Ms. Wright's vocal talents and musical aesthetic since Salt, and in this new CD she invites us to share in the root-base of her beginnings [gospel and beyond], alongside some very personalized secular covers [by some of music's legends] and two tracks with Angelique Kidjo that are surprising and grand. There are also some surprise vocal partnerings with iconic musical beings. And the instrumentation truly enhances and elevates the beauty found here.

In summary, Fellowship feels like Ms. Wright is comfortable with the direction she's heading in life, her origins and her open celebration and love of music, spirit and sharing of it all. I feel 'gifted' and sincerely touched by this CD. While it is distinct for certain, there is no question that this is Lizz Wright, the vocal artist I've grown more appreciative of with each musical offering she graces us with. And that is what I feel listening to this compilation: Grace. Beautiful Grace, Sharing and Spirit. Amazing Grace brings me to near tears--in a powerful and beautiful way.

Enjoy this expansive gem. I will for years to come. It's that kind of music.

[note: the jacket both inside and out conveys the Spirit that infuses this CD...a lovely touch.]

Cheers,
Bead

I don't usually buy gospel CDs, but I decided to make an exception for Lizz. From the very first note, I knew this CD was a winner. Lizz is exceedingly gifted and puts plenty of emotion in every song she sings. I like her song selection. This CD is not a traditional gospel CD, and I'm glad she didn't go down that road because it's been done to death. Just like Lizz's previous releases, the CD is a mix of various influences, with gospel being the predominant influence. I also appreciate the fact that the CD is very well recorded, and the bass is stupendous, especially on the first two tracks. I have seen Lizz live several times, and what strikes me about her is that her voice sounds exactly like her CDs. There's no need for the sound engineer to clean up her vocals. I highly recommend this CD. It has become my reference CD which serves as a example of just how good music ought to be.

Very different from her other music, it's somewhat surprising how much I love this album. I grew up in southern cities and in southern churches so much of the music resonates with me even though it's done a little differently than I experienced. The album cover transports you to the south where the songs float in the air along with the smell of magnolia blossoms.

As far as the product itself, it arrived timely in new condition.

Lizz Wright will take to church before you realize you're there and soon you're waiting for the Deacon to come and take up the offering. This cd is a joy especially for me, because I am a Christian who happens to love jazz. This does it for me. Exquisite!

This is my first Lizz Wright and I love it!! listen to it all the time -- I believe these song speak of her roots -- at least to mine. I love the folksy sound and the hand clapping and the rich voice of Ms. Wright reminds me of the revolution songs -- I just wish it was longer. Hope she does another one like this one haven't heard any of her other projects.

She has become one of my favorite singers. I will continue to support her music. In addition to a beautiful voice, the album is packed with rich music and lyrics. To date I own all of her music. I can't wait to hear what comes next from her.
