Gretchen Parlato – The Lost and Found

null

Gretchen Parlato’s 2009 breakthrough, In a Dream, signaled the arrival of one of this generation’s most inventive modern jazz singers. The recording garnered international acclaim being voted onto year-end, “best-of” polls for Jazz Times,The Boston Globe, The Village Voice and NPR among others. Billboard Magazine hailed it as “the most alluring jazz vocal album of 2009″ while The New York Times declared, “Ms. Parlato, a jazz singer of deep musical instincts and an appealingly effervescent style.” To this day, In A Dream charts among the 200 topselling jazz albums at retail and digital service providers around the world. Now with the release of her 2011 follow-up, The Lost and Found, Parlato demonstrates that she has staying power. Co-produced by Parlato and her longtime musical collaborator Robert Glasper, the 15-track collection arrives with immediate weight and intensity, exposing a vast dynamic range in the young singer’s repertoire. Original compositions, including “Winter Wind”, “Circling” and the title track,prove Parlato to be a flourishing lyricist and composer. When paired alongside interpretations of material ranging from Simply Red’s classic “Holding Back The Years” to Mary J. Blige’s quiet storm gem “All That I Can Say” to the `60s Wayne Shorter jazz standard “Juju” (refitted with her own lyrics), it’s easy to anticipate Parlato’s continued upward trajectory. The Lost And Found shows all the signs of becoming the first breakout jazz album of 2011.

    Yes! I can’t wait to go see Glasper and his trio just down the street in a legendary little venue, The Iron Horse Music Hall. Thanks!
