New Singers, New Repertoire (DownBeat, Jan. 2019)

Kate Reid

My column from the January 2019 DownBeat reviews five female singers who may be unfamiliar to you (read it here). The best of them, including Kate Reid and Judith Lorick (above and below) are really worth hearing.

An exciting new jazz songwriter

I caught Alina Engibaryan, a young Armenian-Russian emigre, last night at the Jazz Standard, with a truly all-star band of sax legend Chris Potter, bassist Michael League (her producer), Taylor Eigsti on piano and Kendrick Scott on drums – wow! She occupies the jazz-pop-soul space carved out by artists like Stevie Wonder (think “You’ve Got It Bad, Girl”) and extends it, exploring the jazz implications more deeply. #AlinaEngibaryan #jazz
