Unique jazz vocals Alexis Parsons – Alexis

Unique jazz vocals Alexis Parsons – ALEXIS:  Wow, it’s been quite a while since I have enjoyed the unique jazz vocals that Ms. Parsons creates… my last review was for her “Hippin’” album with the dearly departed Connie Crothers.

Alexis pulled in some of NYC’s most  excellent players to support her silky jazz vocals… David Berkman, piano; Drew Gress, bass; Matt Wilson, drums; Arturo O’Farrill, piano; Jonathan Gilley, bass and Willard Dyson, drums… you’ll be a believer as soon as you listen to the total hipness on “Devil May Care“… I can tell you right now, jazz DJ’s are gonna’ LOVE this tune!

The excellent bass work on Kurt Weill’s “Speak Low” melds quickly into one of the most upbeat jazz vocals you’ll hear in 2021… definitely the kind of music that will have you tappin’ toes and snappin’ fingers.

Alexis brings the spirit of swing right into your living room with “I Didn’t Know What Time It Was“… you’ll be up and dancin’ ’round the house all day long as you listen to this tune over & over again!

There was no question in my mind that my choice for personal favorite would be Alexis’s highly unique version of the jazz classic “Summertime“… totally laid-back, but filled with images you won’t soon forget.

I give Alexis and her players a HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.97 for this most enjoyable album.  Get more information on the New Artists Records page for the album.                                Rotcod Zzaj
