The Way You Hold Me

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Paula Edelstein
Smooth jazz vocalist Robin Avery received national exposure and critical acclaim with her first recording titled Aurora. With this third recording, The Way You Hold Me, her warm, romantic vocals are complemented by the sounds of contemporary jazz greats who have performed with such major talents as David Sanborn, Aretha Franklin, and Weather Report. These incredibly talented musicians add another dimension to Robin Avery's captivating vocals, which are a brilliant fusion of R&B and pop jazz. Her songs reflect the joys and pangs of love, and urge listeners to make up with themselves and to find their true meaning. The first single "Drive," features saxophonist Warren...

Her songs reflect the joys and pangs of love, and urge listeners to make up with themselves and to find their true meaning. The first single "Drive," features saxophonist Warren Hill who makes this song truly memorable with his mellow riffs and elongated phrasings. On "Kiss Me in the Rain," Avery sings in warm, melodic tones while on "What Was on Your Mind," she adds an Afro-Caribbean flavor which underlines the probing lyrics about the secrets people keep from each other. "Under the Same Sky," and "That Makes All the Difference," which were both inspired by her relationships with her family members, make this recording a true labor of love. Overall, The Way You Hold Me exceeds the level of entertainment that Robin Avery offered on her first CD. Her lyrical, warm sound should have a positive effect on the contemporary jazz music scene.

    "The Way You Hold Me" is Jazz gem!

    Robin Avery's new album "The Way You Hold Me" is a jazz lover's must-have! Her unique fusion of R&B, Pop and Smooth Jazz is a delight to listen to, and her inspiring lyrics about life and love can capture any listener's heart. Internationally acclaimed smooth jazz artist Warren Hill lends his talents on Robin's cover of the Cars' hit "Drive," one of my personal favorites on the record. If you're a fan of Sade, Carole King, or just love great jazz music, you should definitely check out this album!
