I have a confession: I call myself a fan of Amel Larrieux, however, I really only listen to her first two albums. I really didn’t know that she released a jazz album, so when I did I was literally giddy to hear one of my favorite vocalists had an album in a genre that I love. Her version of jazz is quiet, mellow, smooth and beautiful.
I chose Try Your Wings because it’s a topic that is covered so much in music – love, however, not in this way. The way Amel sings and the lyrics that were chosen are in a way that you don’t hear very often. The song is soft, soothing, and just what I want to listen to on a rainy night. Absolutely beautiful.
