Album Description

Blue, her fifth solo recording, is the second installment of the internationally acclaimed vocalist's color series collaboration with pianist/composer Mark Little. The project teaming the Polish born virtuoso singer with the veteran piano man from Texas, which began with the 2006 release of Black, takes on a new and exciting character with Blue. The former date symbolized a beginning - rich, dark soils from which life springs with modern, edgy, interpretations of timeless classics from the Great American Songbook that revealed Beata's traditional jazz roots, displaying her rhythmic acuity and fine tuned control of tonality, solidly placing her in the lineage of great songstresses, such as Sarah Vaughn, Carmen McRae, Betty Carter and Shirley Horn. On Blue she takes what was first developed on Black in different direction, eschewing the words of lyrics for a freer sound centered around her uncanny ability to achieve emotional depth through the melodic manipulation of rhythm and pitch.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
