Smoothly performed jazz vocals The Rebecca Kilgore Trio – Vol 1

Smoothly performed jazz vocals The Rebecca Kilgore Trio – VOL 1:  I’m surprised that I haven’t caught Rebecca’s smoothly performed jazz vocals before, since she lives just down the road in Portland… check out her upbeat & lively performance from a couple years back (2019) first…

Hopefully, before the new album release on April 30th, 2021, there will be more live videos posted when you SUBSCRIBE to Rebecca’s YouTube channel.

If you dig slinky mellow jazz vocals, you’ll instantly fall in love with Rebecca’s performance of  “Somebody Just Like You”… pianist Randy Porter and bassist Tom Wakeling feed on her energy, and the magic abounds… I also truly enjoyed Dick Titterington’s cornet work on this tune.  DJ’s will be spinning this tune often!

My Great Northwest morning lit up with Rebecca’s shimmering performance of her friend Harry Allen’s “Like the Brightest Star”… Randy’s keyboard just sparkles with life on this great song, too.

A high-energy bass intro from Tom on “Day In – Day Out” was the perfect setup for Rebecca’s fantastic vocal… Great American Songbook fans will dig down deep into this peppy performance!

It was the down & dirty bluesy piano on “Because We’re Kids” (lyrics by Dr. Seuss) that won my vote for personal favorite of the thirteen tantalizing tunes Rebecca offers up… perfect timing, perfect execution.

I give Rebecca and all her players a HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.97 for this fine album.  Get more information on Rebecca’s recordings page as it becomes available.                                        Rotcod Zzaj
