Album Review: Anna Wilson - Jazzbird/Songbird (Score: 8/10)

ANNA WILSON COVERA few years after her lively duets concept album Countrypolitan, jazz vocalist and renowned country/jazz songwriter Anna Wilson takes the graceful, intimate route on Jazzbird/Songbird, which takes a modern approach to old-school record making. With the listener’s passions clearly in mind, Wilson creates a true A side/B side journey, showcasing her talents as a jazz singer and troubadour. The singer mixes lush interpretations of the likes of Gershwin and Fleetwood Mac with sparkling and insightful jazz and pop originals that hold up well alongside the classics. – Jonathan Widran
