Fresh captivating sultry jazz vocals Rebecca Angel – What We Had

Fresh captivating sultry jazz vocals Rebecca Angel – WHAT WE HAD:  If you’re a true fan of youngbloods doing jazz vocal work, you’ll be just as excited as I am about Rebecca’s fresh and captivating new EP (to be released on 3 August, 2018)… I did manage to find this short clip for the new album, so get hip to her right away…

…as you listen to the title track, “What We Had“, you’ll know (beyond all shadow of doubt) that Rebecca is definitely a star you’ll be hearing much more from over the coming months and years!

Of course, I prefer full albums, as opposed to EP’s, but I can easily forgive that, ‘coz I’m assuming she’ll have another tasty collection out in a little while… in the meantime, check out the 5:14 “Winter Moon“… absolutely solid percussion and horn against keyboards from Grammy award winning keyboardist Jason Miles… I find myself listening to this track over and over again, and you will, too.

The soulful performance Rebecca offers up on the classic “Stand By Me” is (unquestionably) one of the most exciting covers of the tune I’ve ever heard.  She’s got some of the best players supporting her vocals a singer could ask for (Jason Miles keyboards, Fender Rhodes, Moog bass, pads, and percussion, Dennis Angel flugelhorn, Gottfried Stoger flute, Hailey Niswanger soprano saxophone, Sebastian Stoger cello, Jonah Miles Prendergast guitar, Christian Ver Halen guitar, Ricardo Silveira acoustic rhythm guitar, James Genus acoustic bass, Reggie Washington bass, Adam Dorn bass, Mino Cinelu percussion, Cyro Baptista percussion, Brian Dunne drums).

My personal favorite of the seven songs offered up is “Feel Alive“… this would have been a good candidate for a live video, too… I give Rebeca and her players a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) rating of 4.97.  Learn more at Rebecca’s website.          Rotcod Zzaj
