Blue Port, 2022, CD
Instrument: Female Vocals
Jazz Ruler Type: Ballads, Blues
O’s Notes: Vocalist Jackie Ryan has a fine voice with rich tone, a wide range and loads of passion. This is a set of warm, deliberate, Latin vocals. Ryan is supported by a fine band including Marco Diaz (p, t), Saul Sierra (b), and several percussionists. Special guest Paquito D’Rivera (cl, a-sax) plays on three selections. Ryan’s strong, contralto vocal performance in front of a strong set of musicians leads to a rewarding performance on Recuerdos de mi Madre.
