My Favorite Color Is Blue
Jade is back with a triple SSS -- sassy, sexy, and strong! On her new CD My favorite color is blue we hear a confident, seasoned Jade. She's ready to lead the way down her path. First stop, the blues -- the root of her musical soul. Yes, she's shouting it out to the whole world. Though the CD is steeped in tradition with classics such as 'Further on Up the Road' and 'Rather Go Blind', Jade is coming at it with a full circle approach. Hers are not the down-and-out-I'm-at-your-mercy type of blues: Jade is sick and tired and not going to take it anymore as is so clearly stated in her heavy-hitting originals 'Move On' and 'Tired of Loving You'. 'Refreshing' is the word that comes to mind when I listen to her. The voice is big, yet refined. The musical arrangements complement her singing perfectly with smooth horns, tinkling ivories, a booming B-3 and a driving rhythm section layed down by some of Chicago's finest blues players. What you've got here is a lot of class, a lot of soul -- a must for your CD collection. Check it out.
