Gretchen Parlato

The Lost and Found

· by Alain Brunet

The inflections, phrasing and timbre of singer Gretchen Parlato are simply unique. Her taste is also evident in her stylistic choices on this landmark album for jazz singing, which range from Robert Glasper to Wayne Shorter, from soul, R&B, and hip hop, to contemporary jazz of the ’60s and ’70s, not to mention superb pop reinterpretations. The New York musician further profits here from a slate of top-notch sidemen, all in step with the most recent innovations in the game when it was made in 2011.
