Stunning soulful sounds Fostina Dixon – Vertical Alignment

Stunning soulful sounds Fostina Dixon – VERTICAL ALIGNMENT:  This is my first aural adventure with the stunning and soulful sounds that Fostina creates with her stirring alto, soprano and baritone saxophones… although it’s from a much earlier album, I would (most strongly) recommend that you scope out her video…

…there are a few other videos posted, so I’d recommend you SUBSCRIBE to her YouTube channel as well (it WOULD be nice to see a couple of LIVE videos from the new album there, too – hint! hint!).

The primary thing Fostina projects through her playing is POWER… the power of soul, the power of being whole… it’s all there, especially on dynamic, down & funky tunes like “Neckbrace“… it’s got that hip-shakin’ vibe that will make it an INSTANT HIT on jazz stations ’round the world… it’s already getting major action from my REPLAY button!

I just loved the vocals (Jeff Murrell & JJ Evans) on the mighty mellow (and romantic) “I’ll Always Remember“, & have no doubt that this will become one of your favorites, too.

When it comes to sax-led groups with soul on their mind, there are some songs I just can’t resist, and “Strutt’n Down Fulton Street” is definitely one of them… you’ll want to be sure to listen to this with your headphones on – AND, make sure you have plenty of room, ‘coz you WILL be up & DANCING, folks… this is (without question) my personal favorite of the eleven tunes Fostina offers up for your aural enjoyment!

I give Fostina and her players a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with a (perfect) “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 5.00… that means that she also gets my “PICK” for “best sax-led jazz album”.  Get more information on Fostina’s websiteRotcod Zzaj
