Listening to this third fantastic recording from René Marie, it’s clear she fully absorbed the music she listened to growing up: Maurice Ravel, Hank Williams, Harry Belafonte, Peter, Paul & Mary, the Beatles, Sly and the Family Stone, Roberta Flack, Nina Simone and James Brown. She takes their knowledge with her into her live performances, during which she is transformed from a soft-spoken woman into a self-possessed artist leading her band and owning her audience. René Marie is a formidable artist marching us into the future of jazz.
