CeCe Gable – Next Year’s Song – New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Next Year’s Song, by Ce Ce Gable and it’s a solid review of predominantly jazz vocal standards. Opening with original track, Next Year’s Song, is a cool composition featuring Ce Ce Gable on vocal and really nice solo bass lead by Harvie S floating in lush piano work by Alan Broadbent, and Matt Wilson on drums. Henry Mancini’s Two For The Road is smooth but Gable’s vocals are crystal clear with complimentary guitar work by Roni Ben-Hur and light cymbal and snare work by Wilson. Latin salted, Like A Lover, has a great feel, Gable handling the lead vocal with deft finesse and crisp Latin guitar flavoring by Ben-Hur and the lightest of brush rhythm on drums by Wilson. I particularly like Gable’s work on Moments Like This. Broadbent’s piano holds the structure of the track and Gable’s vocals carry the melody in fine view. Very nice. Broadbent penned, From Me To You, has a great Latin rhythm courtesy of Ben-Hur on guitar and again Gable carries the melody nicely. Solid closer for a cool release.

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.
