Andrea Claburn - "Nightshade" music album review

Music Album Review: Andrea Claburn "Nightshade" - (8/10)

Wanting her debut album to reflect her inherent jazz-vocal magic in the best light possible, veteran Bay Area performer Andrea Claburn earned a degree in jazz studies from California Jazz Conservatory before entering the studio with some of the region’s most acclaimed musicians. Making up for lost time, the vocalist powerfully nailed an inviting mix of five originals and classics by masters like Betty Carter, Pat Metheny and Hoagy Carmichal in only three days. She applies her sublimely soulful phrasing and rich jazz vocabulary to a set infused with lively swing, hushed intimacy and all the dynamic emotional signposts in between.

Score: 8 out of 10
