Spirit lifting brilliant music Aimee Nolte – Lighten Up

Spirit lifting brilliant music Aimee Nolte – LIGHTEN UP:  If you’re looking for music that is both spirit lifting and brilliant, you’ll totally enjoy Aimee’s fourth release… I first fell in love with her playing when I reviewed her “Looking For The Answers” album, where she got high marks from my ears… to get an up-close-and-personal look at the new recording, be sure to watch Aimee give you her own insights…

…since you’re already there, be sure to SUBSCRIBE to Aimee’s YouTube channel, so you can watch all she has to offer… I did.

The album starts off with a vibrant performance from Aimee on Elliot Lurie‘s “Brandy (You’re A Fine Girl)“… her vocal is full of emotion, and her bandmates (Mike Scott, James Yoshizawa, and Bruce Lett) play very comfortably together in support of Aimee… I predict this tune will be getting constant rotations from DJ’s of all stripes across the globe!

Aimee shows some solid scat lines on the intro for Hoagy Carmichael’s “Skylark“… you’ll find yourself soaring over new horizons and swingin’ right along in the sunshine… lively and FULL of life.

There was no doubt in my mind what my choice for personal favorite would be… Aimee’s vocal on “Old Devil Moon” is (truly, truly) one of the best jazz performances you will hear in 2020 (or any other year, for that matter).  It earned a slot on my iPhone player, reserved only for the best tunes!

I give Aimee and her players a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.98 for this fine release.  Get more information on Aimee’s website.            Rotcod Zzaj
