Such a warm voice
on 30 May 2005
Lizz Wright has a beautiful warm voice that really grabs you. I have seen her perform live and she is a really tremendous singer, a natural talent.
Perhaps some of the reviewers here have not listened to the entire album as for me the best songs are the 4 at the end, and paricularly Blue Rose which is just fantastic in all its simplicity.
In my opinion Lizz is at her best when she sings soul more so than in the jazzy genre. Perhaps that is why some of the die-hard jazz fans are less enthusiastic.
Listening to some of the extracts from her new album I have the impression that is also the direction she has chosen to take. I am anxiously awaiting its release.
In the mean time I can recommend Salt to anyone that likes soulful vocal music. The perfect background for a fine glass of wine and a good book.
