Linda Ciofalo has a voice that reaches out and grabs you. You just have to pay attention. Her vocal talent is among the best heard today. She is in great company, as much of a talented vocalist as Jane Monheit or Sophie Milman.She is one of the few new musicians who can transfer the passion and emotion of their craft to the listener. She is truly an instrument on her own. My guess is that she would sound equally great without a band. She is accompanied by several great musicians: John Hart on guitar, John di Martino on piano, Joel Frahm on sax, drummer Matt Wilson, and Marcus McLaurine on bass. All talented musicians that add to the quality of this project.Her newest release is a compilation of songs by such greats as Rogers and Hammerstein, Gershwin, Lennon and McCartney and Stevie Wonder. Each song retains the character of the original, but is made even more outstanding by the addition of Linda’s magical vocals. She has a sophistication in her voice that maintains the integrity of these classic tunes. There is a realness in her sound that makes each melody her own. Her future is certain to be bright, and her own "sun set" is far off.Linda, keep up the beautiful music, and I look forward to hearing more from you, soon.
