Description

Little Sunflower on CD

'Working in tandem with pianist/co-arranger Barry Sames, Barbara Montgomery has produced another stand- out CD in 'Little Sunflower'-a distinguished follow-up of her previous recording 'Dakini Land' (a tribute to Chick Corea which drew strong attention). A daring colorist, Ms. Montgomery possesses deep confidence and sensitivity achieving pointillistic thrusts in the interpretation of her song list. She has the wherewithal to make it easy for the listener to be entrapped without truly realizing it has happened. With her impassioned voice of enchantment, the songs exude flower freshness and invite more visits. Bolstered with abilities as a songwriter and lyricist, her personal song skills and talents are of an uncommon ring. From the opener, 'An Illusion', forward to the last cut 'Vox Barbara'. The CD is a minefield of silken vocal trials accompanied by a color pool of musicians. John Swana's Milesian trumpet comments are just perfectly fitted to Montgomery's vocal and the aura created- impressive! Another cluster of magical moments can be tapped via Duke Pearson's 'Idle Moments' as Montgomery sings her own lyrics that stimulate imageries in concert with her range of dynamics. Craig Ebner's tasty guitar interjections reveal alertness, and bassist Lee Smith is given liberal space for his solo statement...nice! It seems Montgomery has broken out of the compress of her local venue environments. The periods of nurture have lifted Barbara Montgomery to full efflorescence as an upper-tier jazz singer.'--IAJE Jazz Perspectives.
