Steeple Chase, 2017, CD
Instrument: Female Vocals
Jazz Ruler Type: Ballads, Blues
O’s Notes: Allegra Levy has a soft buttery voice that is inviting and romantic.“Cities Between Us“is a collection of eleven swinging tunes with cool vocals from Levy and excellent instrumentation. Kirk Knuffke (cornet) and Stephen Riley (sax) jump off with hot cat and mouse solos on “Cherry Blossom Song” with pianist Carmen Staaf shines on the ballads. Jay Anderson (b) and Billy Drummond (d) anchor the beats punctuating tunes like “I Shouldn’t Tell You”. This is a very musical set that captured our attention and would not let go!
