Laila Biali — Laila Biali (Jan 26, 2018)

Laila Biali — Laila Biali (Jan 26, 2018)

                               Laila Biali — Laila Biali (Jan 26, 2018) Laila Biali — Laila Biali (Jan 26, 2018) •→        „She is an exciting and unique talent and I admire her greatly“ — Sting
•→        The singer~pianist has won several prizes, and not only in her native country. DOWNBEAT magazine included her music in its albums of the year. Her sixth album — which is also her ACT debut, represents the culmination of everything she has done until now.
•→        And almost everything swings. Biali wrote nine songs and includes three covers, all excellent. She transforms Coldplay’s Yellow into a swirl of dynamics and rhythms, brings out the beauty of Randy Newman’s I Think It’s Going to Rain Today and slowly builds to a closing jam on David Bowie’s Let’s Dance. It’s intoxicating, and way better than light beer. (Steven Wine)

Product Information
💫         „She is an exciting and unique talent and I admire her greatly“ StingPop, jazz, Canada. To see how well these three go together, is not just a matter of looking back into the past. Canadian artists of our time such as Michael Bublé and Diana Krall have followed in the footsteps of legends such as Joni Mitchell. Whereas these genres of music have sometimes been seen as at loggerheads, in the land of the maple leaf they get along together just fine.Laila Biali, born in Vancouver, has her place in this tradition — and yet she is never just imitating anybody else. The singer~pianist has won several prizes, and not only in her native country. DOWNBEAT magazine included her music in its albums of the year. Spinner magazine admired her ability to bring traditional jazz and contemporary pop together naturally, and to create a compelling blend...
💫         Her studio recording, Tracing Light, received a JUNO nomination in 2011 for “Best Vocal Jazz Album of the Year”, and her follow~up album, Live in Concert, was given an enthusiastic four~star review and named one of the “Best albums of 2013” by Downbeat Magazine. In 2015, Laila released her first album of entirely original music, House of Many Rooms — an indie~pop project featuring Lisa Fischer (Rolling Stones — 20 Feet From Stardom), Jo Lawry (Sting, Paul Simon, Peter Gabriel), Alan Hampton (Robert Glasper, Andrew Bird), and the Toronto Mass Choir.
💫         Expanding on her unique “ability to meld traditional jazz with contemporary pop so effortlessly that neither style seems out of place on the same record” (Spinner Magazine), Laila is currently set to release a new album of original songs alongside covers of David Bowie, Coldplay and more. She is also the host of Saturday Night Jazz, a national radio show launched by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) in September of 2017.
Review
By Maureen Chow on January 26, 2018
💫         Her voice is perplexingly apt with the thematic and instrumental intricacies of her deeply heartfelt arrangements and songwriting. On “Wind”, the vocals become part of a magnificent vision, blended into climactic, three~dimensional strokes of piano, trumpet, and drums as she repeats the words “today is such a day”. When it ends, she’s definitely not the only one in awe.
💫         For those who fell in love with her more customary jazz music first, tracks like “Queen of Hearts” boast a hypnotic bass line, kept light by congas and occasionally, organ, for nuance and excitement, as she sings “He’s mine for the first time”.
💫         Laila Biali is mesmeric from start to finish, whether it’s through swing or performing intimacy. Biali is wholly invested in all twelve tracks, where she outwardly yearns and swells, as though everything she feels in the music is buzzing in the world around her. On this album, she’s reached an apex, and has the full, open heart to stay there, indefinitely. (excerpt) •→        http://canadianbeats.ca/2018/01/26/review-laila-biali-2/
