Considering that Kat Wright has been dominant on the Burlington music scene for half a decade, it’s surprising to realize that the new album she’s celebrating with a show Friday at Higher Ground is her first full-length release. Wright has been omnipresent locally in recent years, starting with late-night packed-room dance parties at Radio Bean, the Burlington coffeehouse/music venue founded by her husband of five years, Lee Anderson. From gigs at the Burlington Discover Jazz Festival to Grace Potter’s Grand Point North festival and a sold-out April show in Higher Ground’s Ballroom, Wright and her band have spread their upbeat sound to increasingly sizable Vermont crowds.

Kat DeLuna's 9 Lives is one of the year's sweetest surprises–a beguiling, bilingual pop debut that should make her a huge star (fingers crossed). The disc is a dazzling showcase for her unique talents, most notably her opera-trained voice, which bends and snaps with ease amid shiny club beats and tropical rhythms. Breakout single "Whine Up" soars on a thundering, round-the-way groove that's impossible to shake after just one listen. But that's just the first of the disc's flirty, feline offerings. "Animal" roars to camp-club perfection, blending anthem-like choruses with dance-diva attitude, and "Run the Show" is a confident party-starter. DeLuna proves equally adept at emotive balladry. The Selena-esque shimmer of "Am I Dreaming" is buoyed by a lilting, beach-kissed groove. And "Love Me, Leave Me" mines the same goth-pop territory as Rihanna's "Unfaithful." Teen pop-heads, Latin soulsters, anyone with a weakness for hooky melodies: DeLuna's 9 Lives will have them all purring with delight.

French chanson/Songwriter/Acoustic Rock | MP3 | CBR 320kbps | 52:49 | 121 MB

Quatre musiciens ont rejoint Mahut, Rodolphe et Jacques, et dans le même temps, dix nouvelles chansons surgissent, instants de vie intense, immortalisés par les dessins de Dupuy & Berberian, ou les images d'Emma Pick. Ces chansons, elles étaient déjà là, elles aussi, il suffisait de les réveiller, de les laisser éclore le moment venu. Ce sont les sœurs des meilleures chansons d'Higelin, la quintessence même de son art, de son langage. On les reconnaît tout de suite : inimitables, nées du fin fond de ce qui le toucha si tôt. Elles approchent en procession depuis la Nouvelle Orléans, du fond des bals de son enfance. Les lourdes valses du passé, chaloupées, les larmes aux yeux, guirlandes et cuivres. « Soul » en avalanche, directement reliées aux muscles, aux nerfs, la joie, la rage, la démesure, l'insouciance… Un fil directement tendu à travers le temps.

Jazz Vocals | MP3 320 kbps | 47:31 | ~111 Mb
Label: NKR Records | Tracks: 11 | Rls.date: 2016

2016 release. Love and the Lack Thereof is a beautifully crafted and passionate example of some of the best vocal jazz available today. The album features Kat Gang's romantic, sly, and swinging take on lesser-known gems from the American Songbook, from the Lerner and Lane classic "My Shining Hour" to the bittersweet "Nobody's Heart (Belongs To Me)" by Rodgers and Hart. The musicianship here is outstanding, with Mike Renzi leading the way as pianist/ arranger alongside Jay Leonhart on bass and Buddy Williams on drums. Guest appearances by Harry Allen on saxophone and Warren Vache on flugelhorn add spirit and depth. The album was one of the last recordings ever made at the historic Nola Recording Studios, with the great Jim Czak as engineer.

Kat DeLuna made a welcome return to the pop scene in late 2015 with sexy slow jam “Bum Bum,” which sampled Sister Nancy’s “Bam Bam” and interpolated Shaggy’s “It Wasn’t Me.” She then back it up with Jeremih-assisted banger “What A Night” (a riff on The Four Seasons’ hit) earlier this year. Both songs are expected to feature on the Dominican diva’s upcoming compilation, Loading, which serves as an introduction to her new sound.

Kat's own musical style is a blend of the blues with hip hop, pop, rock and even country music. "It's all related anyway", she exclaims. Her goal is to introduce blues music to a mainstream audience by re introducing it to the world as Blues Fusion. She is inspired by young artists such as Janelle Monae, Karreim Riggins, SyncOpera and ZZ Ward who share in her passion to revive music from the vinyl days. "It's about the raw emotion in every note", Kat says. " If I can move someone to feel what I feel when I sing a song, then it's all worth it". With her own band, Blues Revival, she travels the world with the intent to "wake up the blues one song at a time".

Genre: Vocal Jazz | Label: Sony Masterworks

Austin-based singer/songwriter Kat Edmonson has built a cult following around her cherubic, jazz-inflected songs. And while she has always utilized the colorful harmonies and clever lyrical melodies of jazz and American popular song, at her core she's a jazz-influenced pop artist, and this album finds her embracing those sensibilities more than ever. If Edmonson's 2012 sophomore album, Way Down Low, found her moving even further afield from the cabaret jazz of 2009's Take to the Sky, then 2014's The Big Picture reveals another evolution toward an all-original approach to making music. Working with producer Mitchell Froom, Edmonson wrote and/or co-wrote all of the songs on The Big Picture.
