AUDIOPHILE REVIEW
New Music Friday

Deborah Silver CD Cover
On the good side, music icon Quincy Jones once called Silver “the real deal,” saying her “strong and sultry vocals are seductive and soul-soothing.” On the downside, or maybe the good side revisited, is the fact that Silver had Covid for 40 days and at one time didn’t know if she would make it through. Now Covid free, she wanted to share a release of “fun and cheerful” songs that covers a wide swath through several musical genres. On display in the thirteen tracks are tunes ranging from country, to jazz to the Great American Songbook. I do not recall hearing a work with covers of songs like “Deep In The Heart Of Texas” immediately after “Fly Me To The Moon.” Track one is an excellent version of “I Got Rhythm” and the work moves on from there. Orchestrations and arrangements are superb and make listening to this entire work quite easy and relaxing. Toe tapping. I even found myself singing along on several occasions. Perish the thought…

Since 1988 Kari-On Productions has helped artists get an even footing in the industry through jazz promotion in the genres of Jazz, World & Latin Jazz through Jazz Radio and Publicity. Why do we do both, because they compliment each other, and we care about fiscal longevity for the artist.
