Beautiful Irish voice, scats with flourishes as deftly illuminating as the Book of Kells. Unique and yet has similar resonance to Gretchen Parlato. What a nice surprise.
Thought-Fox is a quintet led by Lauren Kinsella, whose adventurism was already apparent on All This Talk About (WideEarRecords, 2012). In a short time, the Irish singer has garnered glowing praise for her voice—a thing of rare beauty—and for her very personal improvisational style. Improvisations certainly color the music here, and though possible to imagine Kinsella performing these songs as duos—a format she enjoys—the quintet lends greater structural form as well as harmonic and melodic depth, which makes Kinsella's striking compositions really quite accessible.
