Silky, smooth and not so subtly jazz – is Ms. Jaz. Her second release, titled Chances, is a sultry blend of her voice and the accompanying instruments that make this CD a total jazz experience. Recorded on the D’Mar Entertainment label, Ms. Jaz’s smoky tones will remind the listener of great female jazz vocalists like Sarah Vaughn and Anita Baker.
In these 8 tracks there is a mixture of original lyrics and familiar lyrics to songs such “This Masquerade”, written by Leon Russell, and “My Funny Valentine”, written by Lorenz Hart and Richard Rodgers. Ms. Jaz puts her own unique spin on each of these cuts.
An easy bass, provided by Kerry “Smurf” Jordan, along with the mellow keyboard talents of Jordan and Andrew Toombs, wrap around the listener like a haze, while Ms. Jaz seduces the listener in cut 6, “You Take My Breath Away”. Things that you do to me/Open up my eyes to see/The beauty that’s inside of you/It lets me know you love me too”.
Soulful and sultry blend together to create the mood in cut 8, “Chance On A Lover”. Jaz croons a laid back melody, “Even if you’re not with somebody/The power of love doesn’t quit/And all you got to do is tap into it”. What good jazz is complete without a good sax player? Alpha Frierson reveals his expertise on the saxophone in this, and other cuts.
Take a chance with Ms. Jaz on her newest release, Chances. This innovative artist will capture many new fans through her own style of jazz. Don’t miss her fresh, new sound!
