Zoho, 2008, CD
Instrument: Female Vocals
Jazz Ruler Type: Ballads, Blues
O’s Notes: Perez is a new name on the New York jazz scene but she’s been fascinating jazz audiences in Europe for over 10 years and has two prior releases in the Netherlands. This is her Zoho debut consisting of nine freshly arranged standards. Perez has a strong voice rich with color. She engages her band well throughout the set. David Hazeltine (p), Joe Farnsworth (d) and Nat Reeves (b) are among the very talented team on It’s Happenin’. “Blame It On My Youth” is a pleasant tune with nice accents from John Levy on flute. Perez takes her time with “Corcovado” allowing all of the sentiment to flow. We like her style.
