The Orchard

( 6 )

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
With her critically acclaimed sophomore disc, Dreaming Wide Awake, Lizz Wright became a jazz chanteuse to watch. On her third disc, the largely self-penned The Orchard, Wright makes an inviting and intimate musical statement on original compositions including "Coming Home," "My Heart," "Another Angel," and "When I Fall." Wright also lends her smoldering contralto to revelatory readings of the Ike and Tina Turner classic "I Idolize You," Sweet Honey in the Rock's "Hey Mann," the Led Zeppelin ballad "Thank You," and Patsy Cline’s haunting "Strange."

All Music Guide
The Orchard is an intimate, intensely personal album that ranks among the most compelling of the artist's career. With help from singer/songwriter Toshi Reagon, Marc Anthony Thompson (who records under the name Chocolate Genius), and members of Ollabelle, Calexico, and Bob Dylan's band, Wright has created a beautiful, organic feel on The Orchard -- one that is the perfect vehicle for her expressive voice and original songwriting vision. Yet it is Wright herself who shines through most powerfully here, whether on stunning originals such as "When I Fall" or her treatments of Ike & Tina's "I Idolize You" and Led Zeppelin's "Thank You." ~ Anthony Tognazzini

    whether you are in or out of love...

    Whether you are in or out of love.. her voice will bring you to tears. her voice pours over you like honey. Glorious. Soulful. It is so moving it will bring you to tears. I first learned of Lizz Wright when she opened for another artist a live concert. I fell in love. First rate - you will not be disappointed.

    American Song Goddest

    Friday evening, Feb. 6, 2009, I enjoyed a magical night at the Allen room, Home of Lincoln Center; under the beautiful stars and back drop of Manhattan Sky light with the soulful sound of Lizz Wright. Spellbound by her melodic, sweet, penetrating voice, it left you wanting and craving for more of her soulful voice. How I wished that this night would not end...it was magical. I rushed out and purchased her album, The Orchid.

    Who Alicia Keys wishes she was.

    Why Lizz Wright isn't a major star is beyond me. One of the most beautiful collections of music out there.

    A true music gift to us all....

    I have yet to purchase this album, but I am fortunate however to have listened to Ms. Wright's first two albums, Salt and Dreaming Wide Awake. She is hands down one of most gifted and superb vocalists I have ever heard and encourage anyone who appreciates genuine singer/songwriters to give Liz a chance.
