Album Review: Into the Light by Sunny Wilkenson

Renowned jazz vocalist and longtime Michigan State University educator Sunny Wilkinson celebrates the foundational strength and inspiration of family with a riveting mix of vibrant and heartfelt originals and freshly re-imagined pop classics. With her co-producer and pianist husband Ron Newman leading her dynamic trio, Wilkinson swings, dreams and waltzes, showcases her expansive range (from quietly intimate to wildly soaring high notes) and scats with delightful abandon while sharing expressions of love for, among others, her son, her stepson and husband and the beautiful endurance of their marriage.
