Camille Filfiley - Camille Filfiley - Jazz
El primer disco de una gran cantante de jazz que sorprende por su calidad.
Realmente me congratulo de haberla escuchado.
"A wonderful singer with her own sound" says eight-time Grammy award winning artist Michael Brecker, of the incredible and sultry vocalist Camille Filfiley, whose interpretations of these twelve classic and timeless standards are a must for any jazz collector.
Chances are, you've heard her voice...After hundreds of recording sessions, from solo artist to jingles, from jazz to pop and everything else in between, Camille Filfiley has established herself as a first call studio pro, and her name has appeared on numerous gold records.
In addition, her live performances have excited many an audience in the New York area.
Now hear her like you've never heard her before on her debut jazz CD, titled simply
Here is a collection of tunes performed with a style and phrasing truly unique and remarkable. TV personality and host Laura Savini remarked "the CD is incredible" in the network television appearance featuring Camille performing two of the CD's tunes.
With influences from Nancy Wilson to Sarah Vaughn, Camille delivers the goods, backed by a stellar jazz trio featuring pianist Al Quinn, upright bassist Bill McCrossen, and drummer Chris Roselli (who spent several years with the great jazz legend Sir Roland Hanna).
Several guest sax players join the trio as well.
This is a must have for any fan of great jazz vocals!
Reviewer: Jazz & Blues Quarterly
From the opening vocal intro of 'Misty' to the grand finale of 'Since I Fell For You', vocalist Camille Filfiley gives new life to a bunch of classic standards.
Her improvisational approach recalls the work of Betty Carter and Carmen McRae, and the choice of material on this CD works well in that context.
The CD is also superbly recorded by veteran engineer Tommy Uzzo (who co-produced with Rick Suchow), particularly Bill McRossen's upright bass - which jumps out from the speakers and sounds like it's being played right in your living room; quite rare for a jazz recording like this.
Definitely a cutting edge performance by Camille and her group,
