Vivacious vocal jazz Susan Tobocman – Touch & Go

Vivacious vocal jazz Susan Tobocman – TOUCH & GO:  Susan’s lively performances make for some of the most vivacious vocal jazz you will ever listen to.  Even on more laid-back tunes like Jimmy Webb’s “Wichita Lineman”, her buoyant vocal will pick your mood up and put you in a better mood…

…there’s only one video there right now, but I suspect if you SUBSCRIBE to Susan’s YouTube channel, you’ll find more there very soon (hint! hint!)…

The high-energy talent complimenting Susan’s magical jazz vocals will thrill you as well… Joel Frahm on sax(es), Dave Eggar playing cello, Pete McCann on acoustic/electric guitars, Henry Hay on piano & Fender Rhodes, Matt Pavolka doing acoustic & electric bass and drums from Michael Sarin all play beautifully on tunes like the upbeat title track, the 4:13 “Touch & Go“, an original instrumental composed by Susan (in fact, she wrote 5 of the tunes on the album)… DJ’s everywhere are going to be spinning this frequently!

The perfect pacing on “The Way to You” (another original by Susan) just shimmers with personality… in fact, I’d say that is Susan’s top-of-the-line strength… she melds her experiences seamlessly into something listeners can relate to intimately.

It only took me one pass through the dozen songs on the album to make my choice for personal favorite… “Make Believe” will lift your spirits high and you’ll soon be soaring!

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