Manner Effect, 2012, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: Ballads, Blues
O’s Notes: Manner Effect is a band that brings together five distinct musicians, each contributing original work to the collaboration. A the center is vocalist Sarah Elizabeth Charles who sings, scats and breathes warm love into each selection. She is surrounded by Michiganders Caleb Curtis (sax), Logan Evan Thomas (p), PJ Roberts (b) and Josh Davis (d). They all take a leadership role on Abundance making music that pops with fresh contemporary sounds and leaves us anxious to hear the next track. There is an accompanying DVD with the story of their birth as a band. This team is well integrated into social media and poised to be around for a while, a very good thing!
