O’s Notes: Lili is a New Yorker living in Philly, with African-American and Cuban heritage who sings and plays guitar with a folksy jazz sound. She is turning out her fifth album as a leader and it is a gem. There are hints of Cassandra Wilson and Nina Simone but Añel has her own voice. She composed 9 of the 11 tracks – all centered on a quest for true love. Her tone is deep, always on pitch and warm making this an easy session to enjoy. We enjoyed the harmonized vocals and soft funk of “So Far Away”. Lili soars on “That’s All I Want From You”.
