Blistering Intensity.... .
For those devotees of vocal jazz, take your plastic and charge this purchase to your jazz account! This voice is hot and geared up to lay some sizzling tones across your space, so make room! Karmyn Tyler is an entertainer, period! Contained in this angelic frame is all the voluptuous vibrancy and titillating tones that divide the haves and have-nots of the industry. Ms. Tyler in a "Manhattan Minute" can transport you from the seduction of moonlight to the heated swing of a Saturday night, with her versatility and vocal range. Accompanied by the outstanding arrangements of Chris Meeks, this new project, titled for the artist, will cash in on even the most barren of rooms.
This 2004 self-released undertaking has a Vegasesque appeal to each cut. Opening the gates with Gershwin’s "Summertime" exquisitely performed to a Sammy Cahn melody which is in a league of it’s own. Ms. Tyler exceeds all expectations of a debut project.
Seemingly timid at times but with an underlying fire, Ms. Tyler branches out from Broadway to Opera in her execution of song. Mr. Meeks arrangements complement her style never compromising the basics of vocal jazz. Case in point is the melodic tribute to Arthur Schwartz "Dancing in the Dark/Night and Day", a marvelous effort! Ms. Tyler also demonstrates an inferno of passion as she hits the stage with Wildhorn’s "Big Time", heavy and strong, powerful performance.
Embrace this talent, for she is and will be for years to come.
