A couple of classics were released this past year, a few tributes, music from some that are jazz favorites and a couple of relative new-comers. Harry Connick’s new release is a little different from what is longtime fans may be used to from him. His CD “That Would Be Me” was released this month. Herb Alpert’s “Come Fly with Me,” became available last month, as well as Lizz Wright’s “Freedom & Surrender.” http://museumofuncutfunk.com/2015/09/17/for-the-funkin-love-of-lizz/
Lizz Wright’s fifth album “Freedom & Surrender” drops on October 16th. A revelation in music since her first release “Salt,” I’m looking forward to the new work. Although Wright’s music ain’t FUNK, the spiritual nature of her flavor and delivery, is consistently off the FUNKIN’ CHAIN!
