Inside You CD

Jazz Times Review


Jazz standards in an intimate format of just guitar, bass and clear, rich vocals that is the new album of Jenny Davis, Inside You. Jenny Davis vocals are equally soulful and honest in ballads like “My Romance” or swingin pieces like “On Green Dolphin Street”. Like any good jazz musician Jenny uses her voice as an instrument, improvising and playing with the melodies. She is the kind of singer that gets deep into the songs and makes you feel the lyrics

Jenny has a unique style yet deeply rooted in the jazz and vocalese tradition, evident in her phrasing and improvisations on Charlie Parker’s “Confirmation”, Kaper’s “On Green Dolphin Sreet” and the slow swingin’ of “Softly as in the Morning Sunrise.

Brazilian music, especially the music from composer Tom Jobim has become standards fixed in the repertoire of most jazz singers. Jenny is not the exception with her wonderful interpretation of Jobim’s “No More Blues”. The album also includes an original by Jenny, “Inside You”, with a modern jazz feel and a lovely version of one of my favorites McCartney and Lennon songs, “Blackbird.”CMJ Jazz Chart

CMJ JAZZ CHART REVIEW

Jenny Davis has a very unaffected organic vocal quality. Her notes ring pure and her diction is crystalline and inviting. This coupled with the intimacy of a guitar led ensemble creates the transparency that is so beautiful within the jazz genre, bassist Ted Enderle and guest saxist Louis Aissen round out the ensemble for a delightfully engaging offering.

Inside You
features a well chosen set of standards not so commonly covered in the vocal jazz arena, which is a signature trait of Davis’ carried over into her junior release. The title track is also a Davis original that has an angular vibe to the melody. Her ability to easily translate from one transition to the next within this composition is a true testament to her abilities and musicality as a vocalist and writer.

Jazz is a genre that is presented live in many venues across the nation in small ensemble settings. The intimacy and chemistry between the players is at its best when presented in this setting. What is most evident immediately is the strength and control Davis has with her instrument. Guitarist, Chuck Easton and Davis along with bassist Ted Enderle have created a conversational jazz, which is truly why many listen to standards in the first place. They enjoy the lyrical story line and intimacy of the genre.

What Inside You
offers is a clear signature sound vocally, texturally and musically. Davis is truly coming into her own stride as a performer and writer. A befitting junior offering from this northwest artist, we hope to continue to enjoy for years to come.
