Hypersoul, 2011, CD
Instrument: Female Vocals
Jazz Ruler Type: Ballads, Blues
O’s Notes: Sasha’s deep tones work well on lyrics and her scatting/vocalizations. She plays with her voice fitting it in to the musical landscape of her band. That team is drummer Julian Addison, James Westfall on keyboards, bassist Jasen Weaver and Nick Solnick on percussion. Guest artist Steve Masakowski plays guitar on two selections notably “Tacea La Notte Placida”. We enjoyed “St. James Infirmary”, “Congo de Ossanha”, “E Preciso Perdoar” and “Pieces of You”. This recording is pretty good but our experience at Sasha’s live performance in Charlotte earlier this year was excellent! Don’t miss the opportunity to catch her live.
