Miriam AidaCome On Home ... CD
Connective (Germany), 2008. Used ... $9.99
Miriam Aida really knocks our socks off with this set – a classic-styled album of jazz vocals that's quite different than some of her previous Brazilian-tinged work! Aida really captures a cool sort of 50s/60s groove here – a hip-walking approach to female jazz vocals that packs a lot more punch than overdone torch vocal styles, and which really reminds us of some of our favorites from back in the day – like Annie Ross or Marian Montgomery! Most numbers are taken in a soul jazz style – played live by a combo that includes sax and flute from Fredrik Kronkvist, plus organ, piano, bass, and drums – and the tunes are mostly old too, and set up in some hip rhythms that really keep things groovy. Titles include a great vocal take on Dusko Goykovich's "A Handful Of Soul", plus "Now That You're Gone", "Come On Home", "Make Sure You're Sure", "Rainbow's End", "Ruby & The Pearl", and "Jive Samba".
