One of the loveliest, finest saxtresses/flutists/vocalists in all of c-jazz, Paula Atherton, is back with her stylish new release "Can You Feel It?" This project is as full of charm and soul as one could ever hope for in this vibrant, colorful genre that refuses to die -- despite critics’ predictions years ago.
As one who should have long ago been sharing the stage and spotlight with the best of the best in this business and certainly no unknown, I still feel this gem of a woman hasn’t gotten the absolute and full attention she deserves. Armed with a beautiful personality and always full of energy, electricity, and passion -- both live and in the studio, one is assured of getting their money’s worth and then some with her.
This album contains so much character and vibrancy that it’s hard to single out one showstopping track here. Beginning with a hot Latin-laced number called “One Night in Madrid,” followed by a sizzling cover of Patrice Rushen’s “Forget Me Nots,” a slick, sexy, and melodic title track featuring Greg Manning tickling the ivories, the mid-tempo soulful and funky “Don’t Let Me Wait” featuring her sparkling and strong vocals, and many more alluring tracks that you’ll find simply impossible to resist, she again delivers a top-tier production.
Joining the saxtress here are the previously mentioned keyboardist Greg Manning, guitarist and hubby Lou Giminez, Rippingtons keyboardist Bill Heller, and the classy, sexy trumpeter Cindy Bradley, among others who all contribute masterful skills on this wonder-filled adventure in c-jazz.
Paula has been one of the true troopers in the world of c-jazz, never relinquishing the music for more lucrative genres. She is obviously wedded to this culture, and her fans are ecstatic that she has remained so devoted. If you’ve not experienced her magic, you need not deny yourself one more minute. Experience her, and yes, you will feel it.
