Oleta Adams, 2017, CD
Instrument: FEMALE VOCAL
Jazz Ruler Type: Ballads, Blues
O’s Notes: Oleta Adams is a warm, soulful vocalist, pianist and composer with a long list of accolades. She produces“Third Set“with a polished team that includes guitarist James Harrah, bassist John Peña and John Cushon on drums and percussion. She recreates classics like Cole Porter’s “It’s Alright With Me” in a mature fashion. After more than 45 years performing, she doesn’t have the youthful power and range of her prime, yet her grace and tone remain but with a different filter. Highlights are the blues based “Do I Move You” and her own “Wilted Roses”.
