A Dream

I discovered Lizz Wright's first album "Salt" back in 2003 and was instantly struck by her musicality, her arrangements, and of course, her voice. "Dreaming Wide Awake" is even better. The emotion is deeper, the arrangements even more interesting, and her voice is achingly beautiful. This album and this artist are going to be favorites of mine forever.

I hope she continues down this path of melodic, nearly-jazz genre.
