White Butterfly, 2006, CD
Instrument: Female Vocals
Jazz Ruler Type: Ballads, Blues
O’s Notes: Joy’s soft vocals parallel her soft curves and gentle starry eyes. But her music has more depth than an attractive appearance. Bellis sings these popular tunes like then were her own. We especially liked “Bonita”, “It’s Over Now” and “Out of This World”. The trio behind her is David Epstein (p), Robert Sabin (b) and Jeff Davis (d) with percussion on five of the thirteen tracks from Doug Hinrichs. Together they sound great with a well-recorded, open sound that allows all of the tones to come through clearly.
