JazzWeekly reviews Nancy Kelly, Jazz Woman: The Reel to Real Sesssions

Nancy Kelly Promo 2


by George Harris

There are only two songs on this ep by vocalist Nancy Kelly, but they leave you with a taste for more. Her two songs have her in the hip shadows of John DiMartino/p-key, d Howard/b Freddie Hendrix/tp, Harry Allen/ts, Carmen Intorre Jr/dr-perc, Wesley Amorim/g and Jimmy Johns/vib. Her “Jazz Woman” has a bohemian soul feel, accentuated by Hendrix’s muted noir trumpet as Kelly coos out the lyrics. “Move Over” saunters with Allen’s breathy tenor sax and Johns’ vibes adding long shadows to Kelly’s alluring lyrics. By saying less, she makes you lean in.

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.
