CD Review: Kayla Taylor - You'd be Surprised

Atlanta native and recipient of the 2010 Ovation Award for Outstanding Vocal Performance Kayla Taylor imprint her personal style to some of the classics of the Great American Songbook on the album You'd be surprised. Even though Taylor tone and phrasing might be similar to other modern jazz female singers, but her approach to songs like "Devil may care" and "You'd be surprised" is refreshing and totally her own.

Will Scruggs lyrical saxophone and Steve Moore vintage sound on guitar are the perfect complement to Taylor playful, sometimes sexy voice on Porter "Just one of those things" and "It's De-Lovely", Gershwin "Our love is here to stay" and Rodgers "Where or When".

Good morning heartache, Just one of those things, You'd be surprised, Our love is here to stay, I only have eyes for you, You're driving me crazy, Treat me rough, Where or when, It's De-Lovely, Devil may care, Blues stay away from me

Kayla Taylor - vocals, Steve Moore - guitar, Michael Dana - drums, percussion, Justin Owen-Head - bass, Will Scruggs - tenor sax, soprano sax
