Unique soulful jazz vocals Ada Bird Wolfe – Birdie

Unique soulful jazz vocals Ada Bird Wolfe – BIRDIE:  What a splendid set of unique & soulful jazz vocals to wake up to on a rainy Great Northwest morning… this is my first listen to Ada’s fine jazz vocal work, but as you listen to tunes like the 4:40 opener, “Lover Man“, you’ll know right away why my ears are strongly attracted to her style.

There’s an excellent introductory trailer that will give you some very intimate insights into Ada’s mighty mellow personality…

…as you’ll see & hear, she’s simply delightful, and her co-players (Jamieson Trotter (piano/musical director), Dan Lutz (bass), Mike Shapiro (drums), Scott Mayo (tenor saxophone), Jamelle Adisa (trumpet), Nathaniel LaPointe (guitar), Hideaki Tokunaga (guitar), Kleber Jorge (guitar) really help her spice it up.  Of course, since you’re there already, be sure you SUBSCRIBE to her YouTube channel (I did), where you’ll find many highly spirited live videos to watch.

Ada’s vocal rendition of Mile’s “All Blues” will have those “jazz chills” runnin’ up & down your spine, I’ve no doubt… I do believe this is the most unique version of this jazz classic I’ve ever listened to!

Ada is a fan of Monk, and you’ll hear her talent just shining through on her 5:38 rendition of his “Ask Me Now“… laid-back, & the ultimate in cool… you’ll be hitting “replay” on this one often, and I can easily see it hitting the charts in a very big way.

It’s another Monk tune that got my vote for personal favorite… “‘Round Midnight” gives you a totally new perspective on this fine song… lush and mighty mellow, and I totally loved Jamieson’s keyboard on this one!

I give Ada and her players a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) rating of 4.98 for this superb jazz vocal adventure… get more information about this fascinating artist at Ada’s website.            Rotcod Zzaj
