Minnehaha, 2014, CD
Instrument: Female Vocals
Jazz Ruler Type: Ballads, Blues
O’s Notes: Jazz vocalist Connie Evingson takes a step back into the 20th Century to give us a taste of Django, Swing and Latin jazz. She performs with The John Jorgenson (g, cl, background vocals) Quintet including Jason Anick (violin), Simon Planting (b), Doug Martin (rhythm g) and Rick Reed (d, perc). You’ve heard most of these tunes before but Connie’s delivery and the scintillating fretwork from the band gives them new and enjoyable energy. One of the best is the title track with special guest Jon Hendricks joining Evingson at the mic!
