Product Description

J-Life's debut album Tomorrow's Warriors won them two Perrier Jazz awards. One of these was for the vocals of Julie Dexter, a young singer who obviously owes much of her style to Abbey Lincoln. This is probably why two of the covers featured include Lincoln's composition "The Music Is Magic" and "Afro-Blue", on which Lincoln was the first to put vocals. If Dexter hasn't quite got Lincoln's passion quite yet (reference should be made to the original "Afro-Blue" on the album Abbey Is Blue) then that is not to say that Dexter does not have a sweet soulful voice. Throughout the album her vocals stand out, especially so on a wonderfully sparse rendition of "Baubles, Bangles & Beads", which has only Darren Taylor's double bass as backing. The sound is generally redolent of midnight jazz, with the occasional improvised solo and a touch of funk, but always with a polished execution. This is British jazz that suggests much more is to come. --Phil Brett

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent band with great things to come 21 Jan 2000
Format:Audio CD
I saw J-Life at the Hull Jazz Festival 99. They were there as the warm up for Jazz Jamaica and still produced numerous screams of 'More!' when they finished their set. This album does not let them down. It is an excellent and well rounded album of brilliant new takes on some old classics (In a Sentimental Mood, Afro Blue) and some inspiring new tracks. As a struggling saxophone player, Jason Yarde's sax playing is an inspiration. Very highly recommended!
