For the first time in his career, Connick has taken a step outside his musical comfort zone to work in the studio with two “external” producers on this album – the acclaimed Eg White (Sam Smith, Adele, Florence And The Machine) and Butch Walker (Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, Pink, Weezer).<br /> <br /> ‘That Would Be Me’ was recorded in London with White and Nashville with Walker. The result is a carefully crafted record full of surprises and stirring musical conjurations, delivering eleven new songs and new insights into his artistry. Additionally, the album art also represents a departure from his other covers, showcasing a portrait of his face created entirely from musical objects. The first track to be lifted from the album is the catchy “(I Do) Like We Do”).<br /> <a href="http://www.music-news.com/review/UK/11439/Interview/Harry-Connick-Jr">http://www.music-news.com/review/UK/11439/Interview/Harry-Connick-Jr</a> Lizz Wright - Freedom & Surrender (2015) tag:esbjazzradio.ning.com,2015-09-06:4069663:Video:35618 2015-09-06T15:43:28.315Z ESB http://esbjazzradio.ning.com/profile/esb <a href="http://esbjazzradio.ning.com/video/lizz-wright-freedom-surrender-2015"><br /> <img alt="Thumbnail" height="180" src="http://api.ning.com:80/files/Rdzuenb-s8vrVZ9Le-kkEbfFrFTOb7oLfB-0lRfaGr*vJOLguBJjrQ3J84pkSa9C15cqLrNCbIoG0ZemKD*04QJW9dhVcGNP/1140412409.jpeg?width=240&amp;height=180" width="240"></img><br /> </a> <br></br>Order online: <a><br></br> (Behind The Scenes)<br></br> Order online:</a> <a href="http://LizzWright.lnk.to/FreedomSurre">http://LizzWright.lnk.to/FreedomSurre</a>...<br></br> Signed CD for $10: <a href="http://hyperurl.co/LizzAutograph">http://hyperurl.co/LizzAutograph</a><br></br> Facebook:… <a href="http://esbjazzradio.ning.com/video/lizz-wright-freedom-surrender-2015"><br /> <img src="http://api.ning.com:80/files/Rdzuenb-s8vrVZ9Le-kkEbfFrFTOb7oLfB-0lRfaGr*vJOLguBJjrQ3J84pkSa9C15cqLrNCbIoG0ZemKD*04QJW9dhVcGNP/1140412409.jpeg?width=240&amp;height=180" width="240" height="180" alt="Thumbnail" /><br /> </a><br />Order online: <a><br /> (Behind The Scenes)<br /> Order online:</a> <a href="http://LizzWright.lnk.to/FreedomSurre">http://LizzWright.lnk.to/FreedomSurre</a>...<br /> Signed CD for $10: <a href="http://hyperurl.co/LizzAutograph">http://hyperurl.co/LizzAutograph</a><br /> Facebook: <a href="https://www.facebook.com/lizzwrightmusic">https://www.facebook.com/lizzwrightmusic</a><br /> Website: <a href="http://lizzwright.net/">http://lizzwright.net/</a><br /> <br /> LIZZ WRIGHT MAKES HER CONCORD RECORDS DEBUT WITH THE POWERFUL FREEDOM &amp; SURRENDER<br /> <br /> Produced by Larry Klein, the release features collaborations with Klein, David Batteau, Maia Sharp, J.D. Souther, Toshi Reagon and Jesse Harris<br /> <br /> Five years after the release of her critically acclaimed, gospel-laden disc, Fellowship (Verve), Lizz Wright makes her Concord Records debut with the powerful Freedom &amp; Surrender. The 35-year-old singer-songwriter – renowned for her earthy alto voice and emotive yet straight-forward vocal serenading – teams with four-time GRAMMY-winning bassist and producer Larry Klein, who’s best known for his work with such leading lights as Joni Mitchell, Madeleine Peyroux and Tracy Chapman.<br /> <br /> Wright enlisted Klein based upon the recommendation of trusted colleagues. Already a fan, she was well aware of his production brilliance, particularly through his work with strong-minded women artists. “We talked over the phone; then we met and did as much talking as we did laughing,” she recalls. “I don’t laugh to just mess around and make people feel good; I laugh because I actually get you. Just the fact that I felt that way with him – I just said, ‘OK, we’re cool.’”<br /> <br /> For the sessions, Klein and Wright gather a cadre of great musicians that includes drummer Vinnie Colaiuta, bassist Dan Lutz, percussionist Pete Korpela, guitarists Dean Parks and Jesse Harris; and keyboardists Kenny Banks, Pete Kuzma, and Billy Childs. In addition, Klein also recruited his longtime songwriting partner David Batteau to collaborate with Wright in the songwriting process. “I loved writing with them,” Wright enthuses.<br /> <br /> Freedom &amp; Surrender was initially supposed to be a disc of mostly cover-songs, centered on themes of “the circuitous dance of love.” Instead, it became the very opposite – an album of mostly originals – while keeping the initial theme intact. Wright explains, “There’s a time for everything. There’s a time to do cover-song records, which can be like sharing good homework after doing really beautiful research. It can be amazing and very creative in that way. But I just knew it wasn’t time for me to be doing that. I had to prove it and buckle down and make it happen.” Cécile McLorin Salvant - For One To Love (2015) tag:esbjazzradio.ning.com,2015-08-22:4069663:Video:35613 2015-08-22T14:49:25.928Z ESB http://esbjazzradio.ning.com/profile/esb <a href="http://esbjazzradio.ning.com/video/c-cile-mclorin-salvant-for-one-to-love-2015"><br /> <img alt="Thumbnail" height="180" src="http://api.ning.com:80/files/edNtLJKyk8qrsUoekEZg6vmo2hFrujVV0OUguo5qHRGjy5cWW5CtfYAsIoK10DhM05BGKGx3f6IkM*LBtRGpNZXNmB*tcuYy/1138173033.jpeg?width=240&amp;height=180" width="240"></img><br /> </a> <br></br>Track: "Look At Me" [Official Video]<br></br> <br></br> Amazon <a href="http://amzn.to/1C6acNP">http://amzn.to/1C6acNP</a> | iTunes <a href="http://apple.co/1g32wSm">http://apple.co/1g32wSm</a><br></br> <br></br> Modern Jazz speaks many languages, but at age 25, nobody is more fluent that Cécile McLorin Salvant.

With a show-stopping, Grammy-nominated debut record under her belt and a sophomore release on the horizon, it seems the sky is the limit for this classy, acclaimed virtuoso.<br /> <br /> Salvant was swept from the warm stage lights of small Jazz clubs and placed under the world’s spotlight when her debut album, WomanChild, was nominated for Best Jazz Vocal Album at the 2014 Grammy Awards. Critically, the album earned rave reviews from some of Jazz’s most decorated journalists. The sudden success of this much-deserving musician beckoned one big question: who is Cécile McLorin Salvant?<br /> <br /> Well, her upcoming release For One to Love is here to tell you. For One to Love hones in on Salvant’s artistic inner workings, as she reflects on romance, love and life. A creative confessional, Salvant calls this album her most personal record yet.<br /> <br /> “I can look at many of these songs, and see that this is an event that really happened, or a feeling I’ve lived through myself,” she said. “That’s what makes it so difficult to share. It’s almost like a diary entry.”<br /> <br /> A poet behind the piano, five of the tracks on For One to Love are written by Salvant herself. In these songs lie the richest expressive moments on the album. Although sonically flawless, Salvant’s artistry does not end at the music on this record. While Salvant claims that music “chose” her, illustrating is something that she has chosen to do. She exercised this co-passion by creating the cover of For One to Love, making the album even more personal.
