See The Woman
BOINE FROBERG ELOVSSON SKOGLUND
They say the night conceals many stories. China Moses is the narrator of the night; her new album "Nightintales" shines a fascinating light on her journey through night time's terrain. She conjures up images and moods with her warm, astonishingly flexible alto voice, as figures and places take shape in the listener's imagination. Eleven expressive songs recount the intoxication of love (Hang Over) and its bitter ending (Whatever), of vices (Nicotine) and passions (Put It On the Line), of awakenings and courage (Running). It's a sparkling kaleidoscope that blends jazz, soul, R&B, blues and pop into a multi-faceted whole. Her 2008 debut album "This One's for Dinah," a tribute to the legendary Dinah Washington, established Chinas Moses as a major voice. Now recognized as a jazz and soul diva with her own style, Moses has no need to hide behind her idol. On her new album "Nightintales", China sings her own compositions. Chapeau! For the listener, many a pleasurable evening enjoying this rich, multi-hued jewel of an album lie ahead.
