Vocal Jazz is a particular kind of music that is placed in that unstable point of equilibrium between absolute beauty and mere expression of technical ability. It is quite common to be in front of artists gifted by a fantastic voice but who don’t succeed in expressing deep emotions, it may be a personal limit or perhaps the choice of songs that didn’t manage to touch the right strings of their soul. But when the talent of the singer is combined with the right level of inspiration, a magical poem of passion and emotion emerges from the music, immediately transporting us into a dimension of pure beauty.
The playlist VOICES OF JAZZ is dedicated to all the jazz singers who, in the recent times, have offered the most emotional performances of class and singing skills. The playlist was created around a first set of 24 songs, mostly released in the second half of 2017, for more than 90 minutes of music. The playlist, however, is going to grow with both new tracks (as they arrive and are selected to be part of the club) and some older songs that from time to time may be added to the compilation.
I created this playlist as the ideal companion for an evening at home, alone or with family or long-time friends, to create a magical atmosphere of sweetness and passion. There are no gap-fillers but only the most beautiful songs played by masterful artists of vocal jazz. The initial list of contributors features incredible singers like Natalia Mateo, Katie Melua, Elisabeth Melander, and many others to discover.
Enjoy the magin and don’t forget to follow the playlist on Spotify because new tracks will be added periodically.
