Exciting evocative jazz vocals Bidi Dworkin – Beautiful Souvenirs

Exciting evocative jazz vocals Bidi Dworkin – BEAUTIFUL SOUVENIRS:  What a beautiful way to start of a Pacific Northwest jazz Sunday morning… a dozen delightfully exciting and evocative jazz vocals on her debut release.  I didn’t find any LIVE performances there, but you’ll want to SUBSCRIBE to the Bidi Dworkin YouTube channel, where you’ll find all the songs from the album (and hopefully, in the future, some live performance streams as well).

In addition to Bidi’s superb jazz vocals, you’ll also hear Eric Hangen on piano, Steve Cady doing bass and Claire Arenius on drums… the drum/bass intro for “Softly, As In A Morning Sunrise” sets the tune up sweetly for Bidi’s vocal… I predict that this bouncy little jazz gem will get some MAJOR airplay from jazz DJ’s across the globe!

Bidi’s skillful performance of Joni Mitchell’s “Morning Morgantown” is full of emotion, and definitely moves me, since I was born near the town… if you listen ever-so-closely, you’ll see those “merchant awnings” and “milk trucks making rounds”… beautiful imagery.

It was easy to make my choice for personal favorite of the twelve tunes Bidi and her musical pals offer up for our jazz enjoyment… her rendition of Cole Porter’s “You’d Be So Nice To Come Home To” is one of the most lively performances of this jazz classic I’ve ever listened to!

I give Bidi and her players a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.99… you can learn more about her music on the Bidi Dworkin website (and purchase the CD there as well).                Rotcod Zzaj
