Katherine Penfold’s “Far Away” is pure, soulful jazz; sweet and filled with yearning at every note. Her vocals are rich, vibrant, and moving, and the whole song is frankly perfect from the mood to the lyrics.
“Expiration Date” is Evie Joy’s groovy, jazzy, battle song about standing up, taking charge, and making things right.
Sweet and sultry, Haley Reinhart’s “Last Kiss Goodbye” sounds like a jazz hit from a different era. Reinhart’s smooth, gorgeous vocals flow like waves on the beach, and the lyrics are beautifully catchy. The track sounds like it could have come from a movie soundtrack, or on the patio of a fancy Italian restaurant.
Accolades’ “Electric Groove” is a fun, fresh, and funky jazz extravaganza, featuring a jaw-dropping trumpet solo by Caban jazz star Alexis Baro, and a whole lot of love for their home town.
