Miki Purnell – “Midnight Bloom” – Self Released

Miki Purnell, Midnight Bloom

It is not uncommon for an artist to create a work with a theme. In her new release, “Midnight Bloom,” Purnell has a goal of wanting to “capture the elements in the garden when I spend evening outside.” Purnell balances her time between being a medical doctor and music. “Midnight” is her second release. All fourteen tracks are essentially jazz genre covers of what most accurately could be called “Americana” music. “Embraceable You,” “Round Midnight,” and “Teach Me Tonight” are all typical of what the listener will hear on this work.  Her voice is exemplary, and she is joined by piano, guitar, bass, drums, sax, clarinet and flute across all the included tracks. Her overall style is nice, soft, melodic – something you might expect to hear wandering around in a garden at midnight. This is a great work to listen to with a special someone, sitting by a fire with a nice glass of a favorite beverage.

Overall: 8; Sonics: 8

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.
