Stunning jazz vocal tribute Lyn Stanley – London Calling

Stunning jazz vocal tribute Lyn Stanley – LONDON CALLING:  Listeners who aren’t familiar with Lyn’s stunning jazz vocal work may want to read my earlier review of her Moonlight Sessions CD’s… you’ll also want to watch the “official” YouTube video for the new album…

…as you can see, the players she chose for this release are DEFINITELY top of the line (John Chiodini (guitar-featured artist); Pianists: Mike Garson, Christian Jacob, Bass: Chuck Berghofer, Mike Valerio, Drums: Aaron Serfaty, Paul Kreibich, Percussion: Luis Conte, Aaron Serfaty, Brad Dutz)… you’ll find TONS of videos from her earlier releases there, so be sure to SUBSCRIBE to her channel, since you’re there already anyway.

Her performance on the classic “Summertime” is certainly one of the most laid-back & groovy I’ve ever witnessed… you’re going to LOVE it, I’ve no doubt… Chuck’s bass is pure perfection on this tune, too!

I can tell you right now that you have never heard a rendition of Morrison’s “Light My Fire” as H-O-T as Lyn’s… once again, Lyn’s vocal and the players make the song come ALIVE as you’ve never heard it before… mighty mellow.

The percussion intro on “I Heard It Through The Grapevine” is just superb, and really sets the song up to be just what it is… my personal favorite of the seventeen tunes offered up on the double album… the recording is absolutely flawless, and the “groove” the group creates for you is timeless… you’ll find yourself listening to this piece over & over again… I suspect DJ’s across the nation will be putting this one into regular rotation!

I give Lyn and her incredibly talented cast of players a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) rating of 4.99.  Get more information about this totally professional jazz vocalist on Lyn’s website.      Rotcod Zzaj
