Open Art, 2013, CD
Instrument: Female Vocals
Jazz Ruler Type: Ballads, Blues
O’s Notes: A strong vocalist plus a strong set of musician’s equals a rewarding performance. That is exactly what we get when contralto Jackie Ryan teams up with a band including Gerald (p) & John (b) Clayton, Ricky Woodard (sax) and Graham Dechter (g). They swing through a collection of blues, jazz, gospel and Latin tunes including a couple of originals. Ryan is soft when she needs to be delicate and punctuated where necessary capturing our attention on Listen Here.
