Karen Lane - Beautiful Love

Originally from Perth, Western Australia, Karen Lane has been singing jazz and soul since the early 1990s, and has been a London resident since 2000; this is her fourth jazz album. Previous recordings have featured bossa nova (2004's Taste) and acoustic duo music (2006's I Can't Help It with guitarist Paul Malsom), and Lane does briefly touch bossa base on this recording ('Meditation' and 'More'), but in the main on Beautiful Love she concentrates on infusing standards with new life, considerably assisted in this endeavour by a crack band: pianist Tom Cawley, bassist Andy Hamill, drummer Nic France, augmented by guitarist Dave Cotton, saxophonist Robin Fincker and violinist Julian Ferraretto. 'True spontaneity' is the quality she is after, and her versions of the likes of 'Softly, as in a Morning Sunrise', the lovely yearner 'Angel Eyes', Duke Ellington's 'Mood Indigo' and the Mercer/Van Heusen evergreen 'I Thought About You' are indeed great showcases for her unfussy but affecting delivery, which is emotional without being over-dramatic, intimate, stylish and sophisticated enough to incorporate a dash of soul into familiar jazz songs without compromising their lyrical subtleties. As a consequence, she doesn't have to trawl the outer reaches of standardland to make her mark; she is (justifiably) confident in her own ability (and that of Cawley, in particular, who adds welcome fresh wrinkles to all he plays) to put her own soulful, personal stamp on everything she sings, from 'Feeling Good' (a song now so famous that even Muse have had a crack at it) to 'Day In Day Out'. A thoroughly likeable album from a class act.

I've followed Karen's career for around a decade now, from the funky beginnings in Sydney, through the jazz trip in Asia and now, maturely into a London grove, incorporating jazz and latin together, in particular with a lot of Bossa Nova influence on this album. Karen's voice has matured like a fine wine over the years, and the jazzy violin element gives a feel as if Stefan Grapelli were involved, adding a fresh and innovative feel to the album. One to definately check out!
