    Cynthia Felton – Freedom Jazz Dance

    Dr. Cynthia Felton’s Freedom Jazz Dance features a collection of standards that the award-winning vocalist ‘loves to sing.’ The 12-track collection also features a galaxy of 19 jazz greats who accompany her on this multi-faceted recording. Among those musicians are pianists Cyrus Chestnut, John Beasley, Patrice Rushen and Donald Brown; bassists Ryan Cross, Robert Hurst; drummers Terri Lyne Carrington and Lorca Hart; Wallace Roney on trumpet; Munyoungo Jackson on percussion and many more.

    Lyrics have been added to such favorite instrumentals as “Take 5,” “Cherokee,” and of course, “Freedom Jazz Dance.” Dr. Felton’s multi-octave voice brings a new dimension to these time-tested gems and her fans are sure to enjoy how she makes each song new again with exciting scats, elongated phrasing and her passionate readings. The distinctive selection of blues, jazz and gospel composition makes this recording highly versatile and should bring more attention to the artistic integrity of Dr. Cynthia Felton as a vocalist and producer of high-quality recordings.
