Firey String Sistas
Firey String Sistas, 2017, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: Swing
O’s Notes: Firey String Sistas is a 5-piece chamber jazz ensemble with Nioka Workman (cello, vocals, perc), Marlene Rice (violin, vocals, perc), Melissa Slocum (b), Mala Waldron (p, vocals, perc) and Karina Colin (d, perc). They have a cool approach that is more vibrant than the traditional chamber jazz quintet. They’ve got just the right amount of swing and Bluegrass with lots of plucking, bowing and singing to make this a rewarding session. Highlights are “Ellie”, “T’Aincy Blues”, “Fantasy” and “Castle In The Sky”.
