Lush jazz vocals Allen Austin-Bishop – Sorry Grateful

Lush jazz vocals Allen Austin-Bishop – SORRY GRATEFUL:  London-based jazz vocalist Allen Austin-Bishop uses his superb skills to give you lush jazz vocals… before I give you my thoughts on the album, you’ll want to watch his live video to get better acquainted with his magic…

…since you’re there already, be sure to SUBSCRIBE to Allen’s YouTube channel, where you’ll find many more performances.

Allen’s rendition of the jazz classic “The Shadow Of Your Smile” will wrap you in his spell, and bring back many pleasant memories… his vocal style is laid-back and well-paced on each & every tune!

Allen chose his players (Alex Maydew, Mao Yamada & Rob Hervais-Adelman) carefully, and they compliment his sweet and soulful singing very nicely on each tune… I particularly enjoyed the full-bodied playing on the opener, “Fly Me To The Moon“, and have no doubt you’ll love it, too.

Of the eleven songs offered up for your aural adventure, I found the title track, “Sorry Grateful” the most attractive… it’s my choice for personal favorite, to be sure… Allen really puts his soul into this one and shows you just how powerful vocal jazz can be!

I give Allen and his players a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.98.  Get more information on Allen’s website.        Rotcod Zzaj
