Standards in Gray

by Kellye Gray
     
 
Texas-based singer Kelly Gray made her recording debut on this CD. She displays a mature style and a deep expressive voice that is sometimes reminiscent of Sarah Vaughan (especially on parts of "How Long Has This Been Going On" and "Since I Feel For You"). Gray is at her best when she is bending notes or interpreting bossa-nova numbers.

Overview

Texas-based singer Kelly Gray made her recording debut on this CD. She displays a mature style and a deep expressive voice that is sometimes reminiscent of Sarah Vaughan (especially on parts of "How Long Has This Been Going On" and "Since I Feel For You"). Gray is at her best when she is bending notes or interpreting bossa-nova numbers. Her scatting is not quite up to that level and when she imitates a trumpet on the overlong "All Blues," it quickly evolves from being cute to becoming tiresome. Backed by a superior rhythm section (including pianist Dave Catney and guitarist Dwight Sills with guest appearances from saxophonist Warren Sneed), Kellye Gray is mostly in fine form for this date. If she could be a bit more subtle in her vibrato and in her emotional climaxes ("How Insenitive" gets a bit ridiculous) her music would grow in value.
