Sarah Vaughn before her, jazz vocalist Carmen Lundy has the kind of
voice that some may love, some may hate, but all must respect. On 'Old
Devil Moon' this fact becomes more and more evident as each track
passes. 'Moon' is a collection of a number of classics ("When Your
Lover Has Gone," "In A Sentimental Mood," "Old Devil Moon," etc.) which
were produced with some of the finer jazz musicians around. Featuring
Billy Childs on piano, Frank Foster and Bob Mintzer on tenor sax, and
Harry Witaker on keyboards, this is an album to consider if you are a
fan of the jazz vocalist genre.
Nearly every JVC XRCD is recorded and mixed well and this album
doesn't disappoint. Our advice, Carmen is going to be an acquired
taste. Her voice says a number of things in its inflections and
intonations making it a good idea to listen before you buy.
