Veronica Swift is awesome, no fancy vocal gymnastics, just the right strength and dexterity where needed. Pleasure to listen to, the Tonal Master. Great backing band and recordings that don't disappoint.

Veronica Swift flips the script on This Bitter Earth, the captivating follow-up to her 2019 Mack Avenue Records debut, Confessions. Whereas Confessions played out like pages from her personal diary, on the new album, the 27-year-old singer and master song interpreter looks outward while addressing social ills that plague the world today. This Bitter Earth takes on the song-cycle characteristics of such classic LPs as Marvin Gaye's What's Going On, Kate Bush's Hounds of Love, and Mary J. Blige's My Life. For her album, Swift tackles sexism ["How Lovely to Be a Woman"], domestic abuse ["He Hit Me (And It Felt Like a Kiss)"], racism/ xenophobia ["You've Got to Be Carefully Taught"] and the dangers of fake news ["The Sports Page"]. Accompanied by a team of kindred spirts that includes pianist Emmet Cohen, guitarist Armand Hirsch and flutist Aaron Johnson, bassist Yasushi Nakamura, and drummer Bryan Carter, Swift curates material that covers multiple genres, including jazz, American musicals, vintage R&B and contemporary rock.

 

 

Veronica Swift is on my must see list post Covid. Had a reservation to see her but that was cancelled with the lockdowns. Will grab the new album in the morning,

I had to reinstall my Roon Library today because it was acting up and there were no other obvious fixes forthcoming.  This is the first album I am listening to after getting it working again.
