My musical tastes are broad-ranging and include all sorts of instrumentation. However, I confess that I’m partial to singers (it figures, right?) and I like a wide array of vocal qualities and styles. Here is the first installment of just a few of my favorite tracks that I thought I’d share with you. There are so many to choose from! Take a few moments to give these a listen. There may be some songs or singers that are new to you, or perhaps you’ll discover a completely different take on a tune you’ve heard before, or it might just be a rhythmic groove that you dig. Whatever the case may be I hope you enjoy!
1. Lizz Wright – Salt
One of the sexiest female voice alive (in my opinion).
2. The Real Group – Good Times
An a cappella group from Stockholm – one of my favorites.
3. Jo Lawry – I Could Have Danced All Night
Love this introduction and the samba twist on this standard.
5. Kurt Elling – Doxy
This dude knows how to swing and what a voice!
6. Dianne Reeves – I Am An Endangered Species
This is such a powerful song written by Dianne, and so true.
7. Emily King – The Switch
A wonderfully soulful singer-songwriter.
