Free range vocal jazz Ksenia Parkhatskaya – Colours

Free range vocal jazz Ksenia Parkhatskaya – COLOURS:  There’s one word that best describes Ksenia’s free range vocal jazz for me – BRILLIANT.  She’s been a dancer for many years on the world stage, but also had a passion for vocal work… as you watch her in-studio performance on the mighty mellow “Behind My Eyes“, you’ll be immediately drawn to her high-talent vocal charm…

If you enjoyed that as much as I did, be sure you SUBSCRIBE to Ksenia’s YouTube channel, where you’ll find a LOT of her work.  Note:  The player list is a bit long, so check it out at the bottom of the video above.

It’s very clear from Ksenia’s own words in the liner notes – “I see life as a palette of powerful rich colours” – that she understands how to use her vocals to bring you both the joy and the sadness of her life experiences through all those colours… I felt that the song that best conveyed that was the beautiful “Rose and Blue“… be sure you listen to this song with your headphones on, so you can catch every nuance of her lyrics folded in/with the players.  I have no doubt that DJ’s of all stripes will be making a permanent slot for this splendid song!

The opener, “For Saturdays“, is just the tune you need to usher in your weekend of lighthearted frolic and fun together… Ksenia’s vocal is absolutely stunning on this song.

I had no difficulty in making my choice for personal favorite of the nine songs Ksenia and her players offer up for your enjoyment… “Green Eyes“, though one of the shorter tunes, just shimmers with life, and the pleasure of living!

Ksenia and all her players get a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.98; a high-talent debut, to be sure.  Get more information on Ksenia’s website.     Rotcod Zzaj
