Swingin’ soulful jazz vocals Amber Weekes – PURE IMAGINATION: If your listening pleasure is totally enhanced by swingin’ soulful jazz vocals, you won’t be able to resist this delightful release from Amber. As always, the best way to get familiar with a performer is to watch them, so scope out this ultra-hip live video of Amber doing “Mr. Kicks“…
…to enjoy more live performances, be sure you SUBSCRIBE to Amber’s YouTube channel, too… I did.
One of the most upbeat tunes on the album, “Gotta Be This or That“, had me on my feet (headphones on, lol) & dancin’ ’round the room for the entire 2:53 length… this is (unquestionably) the sweetest rendition of Sunny Skylar’s tune, thanks to Amber’s superb jazz vocal skills!
The player list is far too long to itemize here, so check out the album page to get all the details… that back-alley bass intro on “The Snake” is “sneaky”, for sure… the finger-snaps will have you on the edge of your seat for the entire 4:44… one of the slickest jazz performances I’ve listened to (yet) in 2019.
There was no doubt in my mind what my choice for personal favorite of the thirteen tunes offered up would be… Amber’s performance on Paul Simon’s “Gone At Last” will take you right on back to your roots & lift your spirit up high!
I give Amber and her high-talent, high-energy players a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.98. Get more information on Amber’s website. Rotcod Zzaj
