Stunning Vocal Jazz From JUNO Winner Sonia Johnson

Sonia Johnson - Le coeur a l'endroitThe JUNO Awards did a noble thing in 2012 by naming a Francophone work Vocal Jazz Album of the Year. The album was Sonia Johnson’s Le carré de nos amours. The Montrealer follows up with Le coeur a l’endroit which is simply outstanding. Her voice is a certified treasure with subtle nuances and mesmerizing charm. We are actually quite stunned at the professionalism here. Beautiful flows of the piano hammers and a delicate percussion treatment punctuate expert musicianship handled by heavyweights of the Montreal jazz scene. If nothing else, track “Je rêve” is a must, one of the best vocal jazz pieces we have ever heard. iTunes
