Motéma, 2012, CD
Instrument: Female Vocals
Jazz Ruler Type: Ballads, Blues
O’s Notes: Jazz vocalist Tessa Souter puts her spin on a dozen classical songs from the European chamber works, operas and symphonies. She gets help from a stellar cast that includes Joe Locke (vibes), Billy Drummond (d), David Finck (b), Steve Kuhn (p) and Joel Frahm (sax). The results are a warm, soothing experience. Tessa and her band take the edge off of the Euro classics making them flow.
