I feel fortunate to have made the acquaintance of Amy
Cervini. She’s a whirlwind of positivity no matter what hat she wears - -singer,
songwriter, producer, manager and mom. Who knew she had it in her to make one
of the freshest vocal records I’ve heard in a while? And if I didn’t know better, a
recording called Jazz Country might not be one I’d reach
for in my stack of CDs for review consideration, but Amy Cervini is not boxed
in by labels or genres and that's what makes the music on Jazz Country so rewarding. You can
frequently catch her in performance at NYC’s 55 Bar, where I took these quick
snaps of her performing earlier this month with tenor saxophonist Joel Frahm,
bassist Linda Oh and keyboardist Michael Cabe.
WRTI, Philadelphia’s Classical and Jazz Source, has
posted my review of Jazz Country – read it here.
