There are records created through years of preparation and production that take a lifetime to achieve. Soul to Soul by vocalist Carmen Lundy, indeed falls in that category, yet defies categorization. Lundy is setting her own course, while other singers seek safe refuge in tepid covers of popular standards. She offers original material delivered with authenticity that can only come from a seasoned jazz veteran.

Curtis Lundy only occasionally steps into the studio to lead his own record date, but the bassist never disappoints. The leader wrote several imaginative original works, including the captivating ballad "Ovieda." There are also rewarding tracks composed by veteran pianist John Hicks, vibraphonist Steve Nelson, tenor saxophonist Mark Shim, and Anthony Wonsey (who plays piano on all but three numbers); the drummer is the seasoned Billy Hart. Shim's brooding opener, "Snake Eyes," is a hypnotic charmer that stimulates the group. Nelson's "Shape Shifting" is aptly named, as it keeps changing choruses in a brisk setting. The obvious interaction among the participants in their interpretations of this mostly new material makes this CD one that stands up very well to repeated hearings.

The stunning new CD from vocalist/composer Carmen Lundy. Never one to limit her creative journeys, Lundy explores the realms of Jazz, Blues, Brazilian Samba and Pop with a multitude of messages that reflect not only the complexities of her own mindset, but the disparity of the world at large. Poignant, heartfelt, joyous, shocked, saddened and impassioned are just a few of the emotions conveyed by this wonderfully evocative singer on Code Noir in a highly personal musical voyage. Masterfully accompanying Carmen on the new album is Patrice Rushen on piano who once again joins Carmen on this outing, Ben Williams on acoustic and electric bass, Jeff Parker on electric guitar, Kendrick Scott on drums and percussion and Elisabeth Oei on background vocals. In addition to vocals, Lundy also plays keyboards and guitar and wrote or co-wrote and arranged all the songs.

Listening to Carmen Lundy "live" on Jazz and the New Songbook: Live at the Madrid is truly a remarkable experience and solidifies the adage that she is in a class all her own. On this exceptional two-disc set, the multi-talented vocalist performs 18 of her original compositions accompanied by some of the music world's most talented musicians. Recorded February 18, 2005, at the Madrid Theatre in Los Angeles, CA, the concert opens with the hit song "In Love Again," the optimistic ode to romance that was previously released on Something to Believe In. Lundy's multi-octave range is fluid, sensuous, and sexy. It is captivating as it floats with seductive nuance and swinging rhythms. "Better Days," originally heard on Carmen's Self Portrait CD, opens with Curtis Lundy laying down an alluring bassline, anchored by Victor Lewis' drums and great comping by David Roitstein's keyboards, Phil Upchurch's guitar, and the Los Angeles String Quartet.

The deep voice of Carmen Lundy is well showcased on this varied set. With assistance from an impressive backup crew (pianist Billy Childs, flugelhornist Randy Brecker, Frank Foster or Bob Mintzer on tenor, and a pair of rhythm sections), Lundy performs six standards, four of her stimulating originals, and Donny Hathaway's "Flying Easy." The music ranges from fairly straight-ahead to more R&B-oriented, with Carmen Lundy's appealing voice being the main star.

What's Your Story, Morning Glory by Mary Lou Williams rounds out the set and is an intimate duet between Carmen and pianist Geri Allen.

Away from the New York jazz scene for a couple years, bassist supreme Curtis Lundy returns, perhaps stronger than ever, with Purpose. A superior recording to Lundy's 1999 album, Against All Odds (which suffered from a weak rhythm section and lack of focus), Lundy surrounds himself here with excellent players who support his songs with wonderful interplay and outstanding solos. Drummer Billy Hart and tenor player Mark Shim bring a celestial feel to many of Lundy's soulful songs, while pianist John Hicks and vibraphonist Steve Nelson add the icing.

Pat Lundy was a New York-based singer and actress who was apparently a girlfriend of New York producer Buddy Scott. She was originally in a group called the Symbols which she left in 1962. Lundy put out Lps and singles on Deluxe, Columbia, RCA, Toto, Leopard and Heidi labels over a 20 year period, all with slightly different sound and style, and some quite worth sorting out. Album has got her working in a sophisticated soul style that is a lot like Marlena Shaw, with complicated arrangements that match Pat's range of feelings and moods, moving from quiet intimate vocals, to harder rawer funkier sounds.

Altoist Bobby Watson's third recording as a leader (following obscure efforts during 1977-78 for Roulette and Pye) was the debut release by the tiny New Note label. Teamed up with pianist Mulgrew Miller, bassist Curtis Lundy (the co-leader of the date) and drummer Kenny Washington, the quartet performs five of the altoist's originals, one by Lundy plus the bop standard "Minority." Watson already had a distinctive sound at this early stage and his solos in the advanced hard bop setting are enthusiastic and fairly original. The Scottish Hep label has since reissued this music.
