Product Notes

Linda Foy is Jazz stylist/singer/songwriter inspired by the brightly colored musical landscapes of the South American rain forest and urban Brazil...as well as the vast blue openness of Montana where she currently resides. This CD reads like a travel log of Linda's life up to now, her own internal landscapes, and her obvious love of multicultural musical styles. Her voice imparts coolness, seriousness, and playfulness in her original songs, as well as in her interpretations of jazz classics, like the beautifully rendered bittersweet ballad Lush Life. This CD is full of interesting rhythms and unusual song forms with some great playing by her band, including the always-inspired Bob Moses on drums and percussion. To put Amazon Calling in the Jazz bins would be a mistake. This is a CD that will cross over genre lines for listeners who enjoy putting on a CD and allowing it to take them to interesting places. There are no 3 1/2 minute perfect pop ditties on here, but it should not be overlooked by those of us who love a good melody and a great beat. This is World Music at it's non-pretentious best and those looking for music that traverses musical borders, resulting in the best aspects of the experience, will not be disappointed. And with an experimental flair in it's approach to production, it should reach more demanding listeners without alienating others. This is Jazz/ Pop/Brazilian/American/funk/World beat/modern folk/rock -too many words for a very satisfying internal musical journey of a great artist.
