KENYETTA and the LARRY WILLIS TRIO:

Every Rung Goes Higher

Holy or heathen, it’s hard not to fall in love with Kenyetta’s voice. Imagine the emotional and musical power of Dinah Washington with the spiritual intensity of the ARC Choir. That’s the unique beauty of Kenyetta’s jazz vocals. Playing with more fire than ever, Larry Willis’ peerless trio encourages and accents Kenyetta’s effortlessly natural improvisations. A one-of-a-kind CD and a very special singer with a gift that deserves to be heard. (#08232)
