Nagel Heyer, 2018, CD
Instrument: Female Vocals
Jazz Ruler Type: Ballads, Blues
O’s Notes: Marty Elkins is a singer who exudes confidence, passion and enthusiasm in her performance.“Fat Daddy“is her latest release and it surfaces a singer who seems to get better with each recording. Jon-Erik Kellso (t), Howard Alden (g), Steve Ash (p), Joel Diamond (B3), Lee Hudson (b) and Taro Okamoto (d) are the band. There are fourteen tracks, all covers that Elkins makes her own with a large dollop of swing, especially on the title track. We also enjoyed“Walk in’ By The River“(4/4) with the same band and a similar groove. Elkins is one to embrace if you haven’t already!
