Description

She is in world class company on this CD, with Warren Vaché and Brian Kellock playing absolutely exquisitely throughout, as well as her father and brother. On the trio tracks featuring Vaché the soloing is simply electric. There are many influences discernible here, or rather she reminds you of others in flashes - but not the usual suspects from the female vocal jazz canon - more like a hint of Dylan here, and a split second of Sting there, echoes of Chet Baker, and one moment in the second 8 bars of 'Misery and Blues" where she somehow reminds this writer of the sweet and elastic tenor vibrato of David Murray. Sylvia herself cites many influences - Carmen MacRae - on the way she perceives songs, Fionna Duncan, John Hendricks, Billie Holiday, Tony Bennett, Frank Sinatra, and Fred Astaire. Whatever the chemical formula leading to it's formation, this is a strikingly individual artist who on this CD is making a significant and uncompromising statement the she will become an authentic and original voice.
