You really have to hand it to saxophonist/vocalist Grace Kelly. Not only is she a fine musician on multiple fronts, she’s also a polished entertainer, a savvy self-promoter, and a real marketing maven. That broad skill set serves her well on this cross-platform project.
GO TiME: Live in LA, like its two Brooklyn counterparts released in 2018, aims at narrowing the gap separating the senses. Capitalizing on the popularity of her PopUp video series and eyeing the way that younger listeners tend to consume music, Kelly delivers an album that’s both audibly and visually appealing. Those who prefer a traditional listening experience may just end up sticking with the music, but watching the way she works, via video footage, allows for a greater appreciation of her artistry.
