Macy Gray’s Stripped is an acoustic gem. Jazz is her true calling and we are its direct beneficiaries.
David and Norman Chesky of Chesky Records have produced Macy Gray in a wondrously natural setting.
I’d love to sit in a small jazz club to connect with Macy Gray and her ensemble. The stellar session musicians assemble a rich groove within their dynamic interplay.
Macy’s vocal treatise of Bob Marley’s “Redemption Song” envelops the listener inside a warm blanket of respect.
My favorite piece after first listens is the last track, “Lucy”. I love how it leaves me wanting more. I hope that Chesky Records and Macy Gray have other music in store for fans in 2017.
