Joani Taylor - In My Own Voice
Here's a sultry singer of jazz persuasion who shines in her small hours music. I don't cotton to some of her more swingin' numbers - at least one includes a nip of rap - but when she gets down to "Thank You for Loving Me" and one of the best, "The Secret," well, then I can forgive her for jamming all her instruments into one chaotic stream on the hurried tracks.
She's sung at the Vancouver International Jazz Festival and she's singing mostly her own creations on this new cd. Definitely worth a listen or 3.
