Emily Sanders Band/Bryon Wallen

Music, Jazz

Adventurous young singer with a sensually rich voice, who, much like emergent US star Gretchen Parlato, explores a free floating Brazilian vocalese style – doubling intricate yet infectious melodies with acclaimed trumpeter Wallen – on many of her sparkling Hermeto Pascoal and Egberto Gismonti-ish originals. Refreshingly avoiding clichΓ©-ridden standards, Sanders is a name to watch.
