NEW TO THE LISTENING LOFT : ALICE SOYER
The remarkable French singer, composer and pianist Alice Soyer may be new to Smooth Jazz audiences, but two legends of the genre – Bob James and David Sanborn (Official) – help her make a seamless, sensual and soulful arrival on her English language debut SKY ON EARTH. A few years ago, James loved her French song “Geste Humain” and chose to record an instrumental version with Sanborn on their dual album Quartette Humaine. The famed musicians put their familiar stamps on a few songs, but the focus is on Soyer’s exquisitely expressive vocals on a mix of vibrant up-tempo originals and lush ballads influenced by her background as a classical pianist and love for jazz and pop. Listening to SKY ON EARTH will make your heart soar!
