Everything has already been sung, but occasionally everything comes across new and fresh, as is the case with Dianne Reeves with her silky, elegant and elastic contralto voice. She simply has everything: the natural swing feeling and talent for improvisation, the passion and the ability to reach people’s emotions. And what is important for her? «To express feelings» is her short and succinct answer. And then she adds: «And what I sing must sound honest. That is the most important thing in music: honesty.»

Imany © Barron Claiborne
The music of Imany is emotional and honest. She writes her own songs. They are songs of leaving and of the search for identity. The extremely talented French artist with African roots, with her expressive and smoky voice, is certainly someone who is not afraid to cross borders: Imany is spell-binding as she elegantly switches genres, from soul to jazz to folk, blues and pop.
