Carmen Lundy-Jazz and The New Songbook: Live at The Madrid
WEMU-FM, Cadence, Downbeat Critics Poll, Michael G. Nastos
January 16, 2006
One of the more dynamic vocal presences on the current scene, Carmen Lundy's new live set is absolutely compelling. The stellar musicianship, original choices of material, and Lundy's flexible, exuberant, deeply hewn voice, hallmark this tour-de-force concert date.
It in all likelihood is by far her very best effort, and the high point in an overall outstanding career that leaves little doubt how great a jazz vocalist she truly is. Upon repeated listenings it's clear Lundy is heading towards her zenith.
