This review is from: Lazy Afternoon (Audio CD)
Regina Belle possesses one of those voices that usually define an epoch in music.
Her understanding and grasp of elements of big band , swing ,contemporary jazz , and R&B make her the first among equals.
She'd have completely gone under our radar if it weren't for Giuseppe Zaccagnino , RAVE MAGAZINE reader and currently Consul General of Italy in Mumbai ( BOMBAY ) , INDIA , who wrote us and even mailed us a copy of her CD for review.
On LAZY AFTERNOON , Belle sticks mostly to jazz standards like " Corcovado " and " The Man I Love ".
She is not all that popular in INDIA ,and that's owing mainly to the fact that no label has brought her music to this Country ,but this one suggests just cause to at least begin NOW .
It bristles with energy , passion and an undeniably brilliant voice.
