Amikaeyla, BEING IN LOVE

Amikaeyla -][- BEING IN LOVE – [RootsJazz Records, 2012] –

Proclaimed as one of the “purest contemporary voices …” by National Public Radio, powerhouse Amikaeyla embraces the best of many types of music. The ten selections on Being in Love, singer-songwriter Amikaeyla s latest CD, are both spiritually uplifting and soothing to the soul. Recorded in both Washington, DC and Oakland, Being in Love finds Amikaeyla surrounded by an all-star cast of world-class musicians. Members of Trio Globo pianist, harmonica virtuoso, and pennywhistle blower Howard Levy, cellist Eugene Friesen, and percussionist Glen Velez are present, individually and together, on all but one of the songs.

Other contributors include bassist Esperanza Spalding, percussionists Sheila E., her brother Peter Michael Escovedo, John Santos, and Michael Spiro, guitarists Ray Obiedo and Jason MacGuire, and singing percussionist Linda Tillery. Amikaeyla applies her glowing mezzo-soprano pipes to four original compositions and deeply personal readings of six time-honored classics. -[Product Description | Amazon]-
