More of 2014 Favorites - Voices

Another fine year for vocal recordings, especially from the distaff side. My "official" Top 10 listed only Kavita Shah's "Visions" (certainly worthy) but here's a list of the others I enjoy and deserve to be considered "Best Of.." as well!

Brenda Earle Stokes - Right About Now - Magenta Label Group

Amy Cervini - Jazz Country - Anzic Records

Hilary Gardner - The Great City - Anzic Records

Melissa Stylianou - No Regrets - Anzic Records
(These 3 vocalists have banded together to create Duchess and their debut CD arrives in February 2015 on Anzic (of course!)

Kate McGarry/Keith Ganz - Genevieve and Ferdinand - Sunnyside Records

Somi - The Lagos Music Salon - OKEH/Sony

Nicky Schrire - To The Spring - (self-released)

Elizabeth Shepherd - Signal - (self-released)

2015 looks to continue the trend of fine young vocalists with new releases by CT native Allegra Levy (her debut recording of all originals is produced by trumpeter John McNeil) plus a sparkling collection of originals from Ashley Daneman titled "Beauty Indestructible" (her melodies will stick in your head for days - trust me, I know.)
