Anthony Jefferson, 2020, CD
Instrument: Male Vocals
Jazz Ruler Type: Ballads, Blues
O’s Notes: Anthony Jefferson is one of the Crescent City’s finest baritone crooners appearing on All I Am with support from pianist, arranger, composer and producer Cory Allen. There is a stirring bolero version of “Besame Mucho” pairing Jefferson with Patricia Pereyra and also unique arrangements of “Willow Weep For Me” and “Summertime” including a warm sax solo from Jesus Abreu. Anthony switches gears to the soul classic “Me and Mrs. Jones” with lush strings before romancing us with “In The Presence Of” shadowed by Mark Rapp on trumpet. Strong liner notes are compromised by small font and poor contrast but the performance easily overcomes that deficit.
