If you are a true jazz lover

Then you will appreciate the straight forward stylistic approach of Rebecca Parris. Her music is a MUST have for lovers of jazz and jazz vocalists. Even better, catch her in person!

They Say All Music Guide

Well regarded in the Boston area for years, vocalist Rebecca Parris, like some of the great singers, is 90 percent style, which she exudes gracefully. This is her first recorded collection of ballads, and she demonstrates an ability to capture the essence of well-known tunes such as “The Shadow of Your Smile,” “My Foolish Heart,” and “Never Let Me Go.” Parris has a deep, mature voice that speaks with years of experience. She has the ability to make the lyrics her own, mouthing them as though she personally experienced the pain or other emotion. Her voice may not appeal to everyone; it has a bit of the aura of the upscale nightclub. Nevertheless, there is no denying that Parris is able to get to the heart of the lyrics in a way that not too many others can. One might object to the sometimes-saccharine arrangements, particularly the use of the synthesizer, but the lush recording quality makes this a very accessible listening experience. The vocalist is joined by a competent rhythm section that serves her well (talented pianist George Mesterhazy, bassist Scott Steed, and drummer Matt Gordy, with Paul McWilliams added on piano on “Yesterday I Heard the Rain.”) Often, the group straddles the jazz/pop aesthetic, but this recording should please her many fans and attract new ones. – Steve Loewy
