Vivienne Aerts, 2023, CD
Instrument: Female Vocals
Jazz Ruler Type: Ballads, Blues
O’s Notes: This is an amazing musical story about women supporting women. Vocalist, composer, producer, arranger Vivienne Aerts leads an expansive cast of female musicians including Camila Meza (g), Adi Meyerson (b), Sara Caswell (violin), and Rachel Therrien (flugelhorn). The project is in support of: (1) 1500 female cocoa farmers in the Democratic Rupublic of Congo, (2) the environment –> planting trees with proceeds from each album sale, and (3) musicians across the globe during the pandemic with fair wages for their contributions. The sound has natural elements with “this type of thing,” or that Typuthang. Extensive liner notes and an excellent bar of Original Beans chocolate enhanced the relaxing sounds for a delightful set.
