Excellent retrospective vocal jazz Dawn DeRow – My Ship

Excellent retrospective vocal jazz Dawn DeRow – MY SHIP:  Listeners who like a little nostalgia mixed in with their jazz will find vocalist Dawn’s excellent retrospective vocal jazz very much to their liking… to get some insight into this fine jazz vocal adventure, scope out the promo video for the release first…

You’ll also find many other performances to enjoy when you SUBSCRIBE to Dawn’s YouTube channel.

Pianist Ian Herman, Tom Hubbard, bassist and Daniel Glass, percussionist do a wonderful job of supporting her exciting vocals, especially on tune like the swingin’ “Chattanooga Choo Choo“… clocking in at 2:55, it’s the perfect length for jazz DJ’s… I predict they’ll be plugging this one into their playlists often!

The opener, “Lover Man“, will make you a believer in Dawn’s exceptional jazz vocal talent… laid-back, yet full of life, this is among the very best jazz vocals I’ve listened to (yet) in 2022.

I had no doubt what my choice for personal favorite would be as I listened to Dawn’s interpretation of Harold Arlen’s “Blues In The Night“… the energy she projects is palpable, and you’ll easily picture yourself in one of those back-alley speak-easy joints from that era!

I give Dawn and her players a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.98 for this fine album.  Get more information on the Zoho page for the album.                 Rotcod Zzaj
