Widely hailed as one of the best jazz debut albums of 2015, vocalist Tiffany Austin’s self-released Nothing But Soul made quite a splash, including sterling reviews in DownBeat and on NPR’s “Fresh Air.” Her eagerly awaited follow-up, Unbroken, confirms the Bay Area vocalist’s status as one of jazz’s elite singers and a formidable songwriter as well. Rather than separating African-American music into kindred tributaries, Austin plunges into the whole river of sound that’s sustained black life in America since before the nation’s founding with a soul-steeped affirmation that embraces blues and swing, spirituals and R!B, bebop, post-bop, and her own Louisiana Creole heritage.
Tiffany Austin – Vocals; Joel Behrman – Trumpet; Lyle Link – Saxophone; Mitch Butler – Trombone; Matt Clark – Piano; Marcus Shelby – Bass; Leon Joyce Jr. – Drums
