Dreaming Wide Awake by Lizz Wright
Stephen Holden from the NY Times wrote that Lizz Wright “stirs jazz, gospel and rhythm and blues into a reflective, flowing style”. I couldn’t have chosen a better description of her sound. This week I’m suggesting Lizz’s 2005 release Dreaming Wide Awake. Lizz is an excellent songwriter and I like this album because it displays her strong lyrics with nice, smooth arrangements. My favorites on the album are Hit The Ground, When I Close My Eyes and I’m Confessin’. You can visit Lizz’s website to read more about her music and you can purchase Dreaming Wide Awake from Amazon or iTunes.
