Bria Skonberg: Fresh
|POSTED BY: momof5pacs||POSTED ON: 26 Aug 2009 04:39 PM|
You will be dazzled by the vocal talent of Bria Skonberg and her debut album, “Fresh,” that is brimming with Jazz favorites, mainstream hits, and a few stunning originals. Skonberg reveals her fantastic and entertaining vocals with sheer articulation and projection. Not only is Skonberg an outstanding vocalist but she also impresses the listener with her talents on the trumpet. As the stunning syncopated rhythm of the piano kicks off the beat on “Beau Dirk,” the horns drive the melody home with intense precision and clarity. With Jazz panache and backed by a big band sound, the pop hit “Lovefool,” hits the mark of this modern tune with style and grace. Take a trip down memory lane with “Why Do Fools Fall In Love” as this classic favorite of the ‘50’s gleams with doo **** tonality. Funky beats and big, bright horns engages “Come On-A My House” which drives the upbeat and entertaining lyrics The superb CD, “Fresh,” is a must have addition to your Jazz collection as its catchy and superbly mixed with artistic arrangements which are driven by Skonberg’s effervescent Jazzy vocals.
