Sara Gazarek: Blossom & Bee
Sara Gazarek, Jazz Vocalist
Sara Gazarek, in my opinion, is one of the greatest jazz artists of our time. Bob Karlovits (Pittsburgh Tribune) wrote about this CD: "Someday, Sara Gazarek is going to be respected as one of the best singers in jazz instead of being a person whose great work sparks a "Who's that?" Her new album "Blossom & Bee" shows why that will be with its mixture of songs from Leonard Bernstein's "Lucky to Be Me" to Ben Folds' "The Luckiest." In between are versions of Richard Rodgers' and Lorenz Hart's "Everything I've Got" and even a version of "Tea for Two" that is worth hearing. All of these songs are products of Gazarek's wonderful voice and her sense of lyric. She does things with songs that never take them in inappropriate directions, but give them new life." I totally agree! Five stars!
