La Tanya Hall: It's About Time

$ 14.99

The excitement surrounding the release of La Tanya Hall's solo debut disc was expressed by American song specialist Michael Feinstein, who wrote that: 'Listening to La Tanya is a transporting experience for me. The natural beauty of her voice, her musicality and myriad interpretive gifts make her singing a unique and joyous experience.' If one word could be used to describe La Tanya Hall's talent, it would have to be diverse. Her versatility in a variety of musical genres has allowed her to travel the world and work with some of the world's most celebrated artists, including Diana Ross, Aretha Franklin, Michael Feinstein, Patti Labelle, Harry Belafonte, Steve Tyrell and Bobby McFerrin. She is also an in-demand session singer and an accomplished actress, having lent her skills to numerous recording projects, Broadway shows and television and movie appearances. Accompanying La Tanya Hall on this disc is a big band made up of many of New York City's leading jazz soloists and sidemen, performing sumptuous and swinging arrangements by master orchestrator, Angelo DiPippo.



"La Tanya's voice is a rich classic blend of elegance and soulfullness- sophisticated and yet funky all at the same time. She's also blessed with a mighty combination of beauty and presence that can stop traffic!" - Steve Tyrell

“La Tanya Hall makes her solo CD debut with this excellently performed, arranged, and produced recording. Her voice is warm and flexible throughout her considerable range—she moves effortlessly from contralto to soprano—and her diction, breath control, and intonation are flawless. If you haven’t heard her, it’s about time you did.” - Fanfare
