MUSIC REVIEW BY Georges Tonla Briquet, JazzHalo (Belgium)

VIEW THE CD DETAIL PAGE

The CD title is not only a direct reference to Martin Luther King but also to the mixed cultural background of the group members. So a statement like jazz in the sixties. The effect may not be as extreme as that of her great examples from that period, due to the solid composition of her own compositions, the two well-chosen covers from Stevie Wonder ('Visions', 'Loves In Need Of Love Today') and Rosenberg does not miss their goal in the detailed cover text. With pianist Kenny Barron and drummer Lewis Nash , she assures herself of select accompanists. The absolute highlight is the parlando 'Not The Song I Want to Sing' soaked in a downtempo hip hop flow with a stunning Christian McBrideas a guest bassist. The parallels with 'This Is Not A Love Song' by Public Image Ltd. are very striking. Wanted or not? A very current piece of work anyway.
