A mellow female voice
Reviewer: Rob Sharpe from TRURO, CORNWALL United Kingdom
I managed to listen to a couple of tracks on a radio station and was immediately hooked. I just couldn't wait until the album was released in July 2003 so I pre-ordered it on Amazon. My expectations were surpassed having now listened to the album in its entirety. In days of old, we used to say that by listening to the tracks of an LP, one would 'wear-out the grooves' if you listened to certain tracks too often. I reckon that a modern-day euphemism would be more akin to 'the more that I listen to the album, then the greater the likelihood of wearing out the laser on my cd-player'. The album might certainly have this influence on my cd player! Lizz Wright is a wonderful talent with a mellow voice. The Title track of 'Salt', I believe, sets the foundation for some much stronger performances........especially "End of the line" and the rather catchy, "Lead the way". If you really want to hear someone who can compete with the likes of Diana Krall, Dianne Reeves, et al, then just try listening to Lizz Wright singing the truly moving "Blue Rose". Need I say more!.........Enjoy!
