Lizz Wright

sultry female vocal jazz

Earlier this week it was unbearably hot outside. Although not soon enough, the rain came and drenched absolutely everything. Now the heat is seeping out of the ground and the water evaporates into a sweaty steam that delivers that sweet summer rain smell right to my nose. Lizz Wright’s music fits in perfectly with this smell and humidity – an undercurrent of warmth and passion simmering beneath a blue-gray soundscape. Each element is recorded with killer clarity: her voice, the guitar plucks and strums, the deep double bass string rattle.
Absorb the summer rain in aural form.

    A bit of a Cassandra Wilson rip off – the vocal style, the choice of covering Neil Young, the instrumentation. Very obvious.
