Jacintha Goes to Hollywood released 2007 by Groove Note Recorsd, it is an easy listening jazz vocal album with the studied influence of singers like Julie London and Astrud Gilberto. With a few exceptions it’s a fine choice for a dinner party or relaxation. The presentation of the material is immeasurably enhanced by a very talented Los Angeles ensemble that raises the bar.
Jacintha showed off her voice with a selection of melodies from the movie world. Supported by the popular Groove Note artists orchestration featuring famous musicians, such as Darek Oles, Anthony Wilson, and Joe LaBarbera. Jacintha wends her way through such classics as “Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head,” “Alfie,” “California Dreaming,” and “Que Sera Sera.” While she handles this change in material confidently, she never quite gets the full grasp of these songs.
As is usual from Groove Note, the sound here is about as good as it gets. Jacintha Goes To Hollywood has an attention to detail that seems to elude most newly recorded material. Jacintha’s voice is fully formed, sounding as real as I’ve heard. There’s plenty of space around both the singer and the band, allowing each to blossom fully. There is nothing sonically that will disappoint you about this album.
This release represents some of Jacintha’s finest work for Groove Note and will be a sure hit with her fans and anyone who enjoys audiophile quality female vocals!
