Restrained, 80s feel, soul funk songstress.

About the Album

All About Love reveals the strong song writing ability of a singer better known for belting out American jazz and rhythm and blues. Full of fire and a high level of rhythmic and melodic content rarely heard these days, the disc features nine tracks in English and two in Spanish. Noteworthy tracks include Galan’s composition “Arms of Love” on Track 2. A contemporary jazz piece with sophisticated Latin elements, it also appeals to adult contemporary listeners. Using Indian influence on the rhythm at the beginning of the song as well as funk. Kamau Kenyatta solidifies the arrangement with the soulful soprano sax solo. Vocals are warm and intimate, carrying the song from simple beginning to powerful conclusion.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
