Kendra Ross – New Voice
(Lola’s Child Music – 2007)
by Narvy James
Sade… Brenda Russell … watch out! There’s a new voice in town and it belongs to Kendra Ross. “Send me somebody to love” will make you jump up right away and start to calypso, cha-cha, step and dance the night away. Kendra shows that she has versatility and range on tracks like “Can I keep it?,” “Send me somebody to love” and “Man you love blues.”
Let me not leave this one out…as the young people say she’s on point on the cut “You made the difference”. Gospel influences gave birth to this song and Kendra Ross gives it life. This is a great new talent in the jazz world and we should keep an eye out for her future work.
