Album Review: "Jump in!" by Lisa Bouchelle & the Bleu (7/10)

The Orchard/Sony

Producers: Lisa Bouchelle, Hal B. Selzer

Bouchelle has been a whirlwind of activity for over two decades. She sings a myriad of musical styles, hosts a music-oriented TV cooking show and writes her own material. “Luv is for the Making” and “Along for the Ride” are pure pop, “You Got the Rock” is Joan Jett-fueled ear candy and “EZ on me LA” is relatable and open. Collaborations with Grammy nominee G Love, The Hooters’ Rob Hyman and Broadway star Constantine Maroulis further legitimize her versatility and range. Albeit a full-length release, Jump In! is more a singles collection than a conceptual statement.
