Lizzie Thomas – New Sounds From The Jazz Age
O’s Notes: New York-based vocalist Lizzie Thomas has a resounding, strong voice that is a passionate vehicle for delivering music from the American Songbooks. New Sounds From the Jazz Age is her latest recording and it bodes well. She doesn’t miss a beat on “One Note Samba” and is deeply romantic on “Our Love Is Here To Stay”. We also enjoyed “Fascinating Rhythm” and “Cheek to Cheek”. Musical director, arranger and pianist John Colianni does a fine job with a strong team that includes Omar Daniels (t-sax, fl) and guests Russell Malone (g) and Jay Leonhart (b). Lizzie delivers continuous, cool, collective entertainment.
