KATE SCHUTT

TELEPHONE GAME

2009-08-25

Kate Schutt new CD Telephone Game is certainly one connection you don’t want to miss. This self produced CD from Ontario’s songstress combines elements of Jazz, Pop and rock to make a satisfying listen from the first track to the last. The opening track has a jazz-soul flavor to it and was inspired by the Eastern seaboard power outage in 2003. “Blackout” is the most rock oriented track starting with an almost Crazy Horse style guitar distortion and feedback and quickly opens to Kate’s beautiful vocals. “Who Is Young, Who Is Naive” combines Italian world beat sounds and could be featured at any street side café. Kate’s hand picked band has players who have worked with the likes of Herbie Hancock, Quincy Jones, Charlie Hunter and Kenny Barron. The whole CD very craft fully balances elements of Jazz & Pop to make this CD pleasing to fans of Diana Krall as well as Fiona Apple. After just one listen you will make the connection with this Telephone Game. Reviewed By: Gregg Saur
