The ancient, shamanistic, musical traditions of the Samis of northern Scandanavia, in what was once known as Lapland, are given a modern twist by vocalist and drummer Mari Boine (Persen). Although her highly rhythmic songs are rooted in the wordless, yodeling-like, vocal style of yoik (or joik), Boine's arrangements incorporate influences of jazz, rock and other ethnic elements.

Genre: Brazilian Jazz, Vocal Jazz, Bossa Nova, Post-Bop

Tania Maria's debut is a mix of hushed bossa numbers and up-tempo, jazz-inflected sambas that show off the prowess of her nine-piece band. "Zé," which belongs to the latter category, is an original tune that begins with Maria's slightly over-the-top scatting and builds into a kickin' samba jam; on "Para Chick," a Tom Jobim instrumental, the group is at its most improvisational, with Maria herself (on piano) dishing out some fine solos; and on the tempo-shifting "Ideias E Ideias," Maria manages to sound like Astrud Gilberto and Ella Fitzgerald within the span of a few chord changes. Though it's heavy on the standard bossa/samba fare, it's also a uniformly solid album and a fine introduction to Maria's catalog.

No less than the illustrious Nancy Wilson has said of the soulful and jazzy force of interpretive nature called Clairdee, "In the tradition of all great vocalists, she infuses each song with her own unique style while always remaining true to the song itself." That dead-on assessment applies to her studio albums and live performances — rich and multi-faceted. Aside from creating joyful renditions of great vocal soul-jazz, Clairdee takes the opportunity to fill her growing fan base in on a wide multitude of influences.

A great choice of tunes and an outstanding supporting cast mark this album from the outset. With performers of the caliber of Steve Swell and Dominic Duval behind her, vocalist Mary LaRose (not to be confused with the equally impressive jazz vocalist Dena de Rose) spins a tight yet expansive story, one that goes deep into the belly of the melodies, distorting them just enough to make them feel fresh. LaRose is a modernist, yet she values old-fashioned tunefulness and emotion. Trombone, sax, and acoustic bass may at first blush seem like an odd combination to back a jazz singer, but with her elastic vocal chords, the mix is nearly perfect…

Gloria Reuben and Marty Ashby Perform a collection of tunes that speaks to the deeply personal, often heart-breaking, and eternal hopeful nature of love and relationships. All of the songs evoke in the listener the question of how you face the denial, sorrow, anger that arises from a break-up, a lost love, and pick yourself up to start over and establish a new romance or cherish the one you have.

Davide Palma is tied to the tradition of big band singers, such as Tony Bennet, Frank Sinatra, Sarah Vaughan. So he tries to translate the dynamics and structures of the big band into his quartet with original arrangements of the most beautiful American standards. His way of singing as a crooner will be highlighted in the more swing and traditional songs, but also in the more modern ones, with more interplay, going from warm and deep sounds to the colder and sharper ones. To obtain this flexibility of sound and musical choice.

Beeinflusst durch ein breites musikalisches Spektrum aus HipHop, Folk und Rock entsteht eine ungewöhnliche Mischung, gepaart mit der Textlastigkeit der klassischen Singer-Songwriter-Bewegung. Und immer geht es um Situationen des alltäglichen Lebens- Liebe, Hoffnung, Selbstzweifel und die ein oder andere Absurdität. Die Arrangements verschmelzen zu wunderschönen Liedern, die gekonnt den Bogen zwischen Pop und Anspruch spannen und direkt dort ankommen, wo sie hingehören: Im Ohr. Unter der Haut. Und mitten im Herzen.
