CARMEN LUNDY

Come Home

2008-03-13

Carmen Lundy has been at it for three decades now. “Come Home,” her latest release, brings this jazz singer full circle with her 10th release. Lundy describes the CD as accomplishing “everything I’ve wanted to musically.” Her vocal range brings, to this reviewer at least, Sade to mind, though the comparisons could be made to Sarah Vaughan and Ella Fitzgerald. She even played Billie Holiday in an off-Broadway production. The Village Voice says of Lundy, “She’s got it all.” And this album is proof positive. Scat and bop make way for Brazilian flavors on this 12-track feature. This was nice. Recommended as a contemporary expression of jazz vocals. Highlights include “Nature Boy” and “Something Happened.” -- Daniel J. Graeber
