On Tuesday at the Triple Door, Earshot Jazz Festival 2014 presented the Carmen Lundy Group in an amazing performance. Carmen was electric!

Carmen Lundy has been ranked with the great vocalists, though her agile vocal style is utterly distinctive. Her sextet includes pianist Patrice Rushen and rising-star drummer Jamison Ross, winner of the 2012 Thelonious Monk Jazz Competition.

Lundy began her professional career in Miami, Florida, as a jazz vocalist and composer when there were very few young, gifted and aspiring jazz vocalists on the horizon. Over four decades later, Lundy is celebrated throughout the world for her vocal artistry and is highly regarded for her jazz innovation.

Currently on the Afrasia Productions label, Lundy releases her fourteenth album, Soul to Soul, on September 23. Almost two years in the making, it consists of new original songs by Lundy, and a few very special collaborations. Lundy spent more than a year working on Soul to Soul, composing and arranging 11 of the 13 tracks, and playing and recording all the instruments in her home studio.

The album features legendary artists including Patrice Rushen, Geri Allen, Randy Brecker, Ada Rovatti, Warren Wolf, Bennie Maupin, harpist Carol Robbins, and Simphiwe Dana, a stunning South African vocalist and composer, among others.
