Banister – 2008
Sounds of Timeless Jazz

Nicole Henry will definitely captivate you with her third CD called THE VERY THOUGHT OF YOU. Influenced by jazz, pop, and soul, the Miami resident gives a fresh feeling to songs from the Great American Songbook.

 

Opening with “That’s All” the award-winning Ms. Henry immediately assures her listeners that she can swing, re-interpret and move around inside a melody with the greatest of ease. She gives “Almost Like Being In Love,” a long-awaited extreme makeover that will have you bopping in your chair. With a strong, resonant voice that may remind you of Stephanie Mills’, Nicole Henry contributes several exciting elements to the title track that listeners may not have heard in previous renditions by other vocalists.

 

Hers is ripe with elongated phrases, soulful harmonic progressions, and a captivating three-octave range. On Jobim’s “Waters of March,” she’s beautiful, buoyant and gifted with an ability to sing over a well-known samba rhythm.
