Just finished first listen of Carmen Gomes Sings the Blues. This download is truly impressive. She has never song better and her band is in top form. The depth and the placement is truly amazing.
Highly recommended.

Carmen Gomes Sings the Blues

Yes it is a great recording.
At first I thought.... Harry Belafonte..... But the album has more to do with the likes of Ray Charles and other of the greats. see her quote:
Quote:'Belafonte Sings the Blues' was one of her favorite albums when she as a kid spent countless hours listening to music and making cassette tape compilations from her parents vast LP collection.
"I had a 60 minutes tape that I made consisting of my favorite songs from the Sings the Blues albums of Harry Belafonte, Nina Simone, Ray Charles, Memphis Slim and Muddy Waters. The tape eventually broke and got eaten by the machine, that's how much I played it!" Carmen recalls.

Any female singer who lists Memphis Slim as an influence gets my vote! Smile

RE: My 20 best SOUNDING album's, (all formats)
I saw this on the Audiostream site's recommended recordings, the little label is truly getting recognized:
Quote:Anything from Sound Liaison
Sound Liaison is a small audiophile type record company from the Netherlands. They differ from many audiophile labels as they produce music that you will want to listen to over and over again for the quality of the music and the performances rather than just for the sound quality. Don't get me wrong, the entire Sound Liaison catalogue, which is very small as they are a new label, features excellent sound. My favorites are Andre Heuvelman's After Silence featuring classical music, Carmen Gomes Inc.'s A Thousand Shades of Blue and Little Blue both of which feature music more in the pop and standards vein and two jazz recordings, Impromptu featuring Tony Overwater and Bert van den Brink on piano and bass and The Witner's Trio's En Azul which features some very creative arrangements of some jazz standards.
Don't know if I would categorize Carmen Gomes as pop, sounds more like jazz and Americane to me, but anyway good review.
