Jacqueline Tabor – “The Lady In The Gown” – Big Daddy Tabor Productions
Anyone living in or traveling through the Pacific Northwest may have had the opportunity to hear Bellevue, WA native Jacqueline Tabor perform live, which she does quite regularly. Educated in both Washington State and Baton Rouge, LA, Tabor has a grasp on multiple genres of music, from jazz, to blues, to Americana to traditional ballads. On her latest release, “The Lady In The Gown,” she showcases them all with a voice that is very sweet and pervasively easy to listen to. She is backed up by a piano, guitar and an acoustic bass played with surprising authority by Greg Feingold. Despite being accompanied by only three instruments, the range and authority of Tabor’s voice makes this release both simple and at times, complex. All in all, a first-rate work by a singer with a superlative voice.
Overall: 8, Sonics: 8
