15 Oct The Music Connection: MUSIC ALBUM REVIEW
by Jonathan Widran
Jazz/pop singer/songwriter Carol Duboc has worked with loads of male greats, including Maurice White, Teddy Riley and George Duke. After solid collaborations with Jeff Lorber, she makes a monumental shift on this eclectic collection, surrounding her sexy and soulful vocals with a stellar lineup of female jazz, rock and R&B musicians including Mindi Abair, Sheila E., Patrice Rushen, Bibi McGill and Jennifer Batten. Duboc’s blend of funk, pop, blues and soul includes seven emotionally charged originals and classics made famous by Rushen, Nina Simone and Peggy Lee. It’s a fresh new direction for this often underrated artist.
