Amber Weekes – Pure Imagination

61zZTk9TuAL._SS500_The new album by American vocalist Amber Weekes finds her in the company of Peter Smith and Tony Copodonico on the piano, Trevor Wane and Jeff Littleton double bass, Charles Ruggiero and Nathaniel Scott drums, Keith Fiddmont on sax, Curtis Taylor and Scotty Barnhart trumpet, Mark Cargil violin , arranger / conductor and Munyungo Jackson percussion. She has often been on tour in the United States and so the great experience on the stage can be seen while she interprets standards not too well known together with Just Squeeze Me (But Don’t Tease Me) by Duke Ellington and Gone at Last by Paul Simon. There’s a duo with Trevor Wane’s double bass, Brown Baby, elsewhere there are sections of string, in every situation you can manage executions with authority, thanks to a powerful but at the same time very warm voice. There is no lack of respectable solos from the soloists called to participate, but obviously his voice reigns over everything. Nice record, which renews the tradition and introduces us to a singer able to interpret an variegated repertoire in an authentic way.
