Nikki Yanofsky Ella Of Thee I Swing Rar [PATCHED]
Nikki Yanofsky Ella Of Thee I Swing Rar
The song that features the most instrumentation in Yanofsky s debut album, Lullaby Of Birdland, is an instrumental; Yanofsky handles the vocal smoothly and effortlessly. The incredibly talented Yanofsky does the solo herself, adding a slight blue-eyed soul tone to the tune. Its a vocal that sounds reminiscent of Ella Fitzgerald, and its a turn-on to hear a young voice like hers sound that way. Yanofsky has no trouble belting out the lyrics, with a voice that allows you to hear the words clearly. You can tell she is a theatre kid, and Ella Of Thee I Swing shoulds have a narrator. The writing is witty, and Yanofsky should keep it up; she has yet to really go all out and show some of her humorous side on her album. Overall, the album is a great debut for a jazz artist, and its a great addition to the growing number of jazz albums available for music fans to enjoy.
With a vocal that matches her physical appearance, Nikki Yanofsky is a pretty girl, and the vocal shes doing has an erotic feel. There is a heavily bluesy tone in this album; Yanofsky offers many different moods in her vocals, and in the way she transitions from song to song. This may have something to do with the ever-changing set of her character; the Canadian vocalist may have been a particular teen pop star once upon a time, but now has evolved into the sophisticated jazz artist who wrote her own material. The songs are well produced and the instrumentation isnt too overbearing, which is really the only thing that bugs me. The album lacks a little clarity, a little bass, a little something. Its like a dance band performing jazz; theyre doing the numbers, but in the background you can hear a base line and drums missing a beat. It shoulds be jazz, and it shoulds be close to jazz, but there s some moments where its just a funk band trying to sound like a jazz group. The album will appeal to a wide variety of fans; if you re into jazz, blues, and soul music this album is for you, but many other people will enjoy the sophisticated vocal blend.

At 15, Nikki Yanofsky isnt just a singer, shes a songwriter, producer, and entertainer. This Vancouver native is the first in her immediate family to graduate from high school and soon will be studying music at Vancouver universities campus at Richmond Centre. And in the not too distant future, the singer/songwriter with the musical promise of a professional jazz singer hopes to have a career that spans the streets, and back, of Canada. “I have a good friend who went through high school with me,” says Nikki. “He said my career plans are just like mine. I look at my life and the world around me and I can see what I do and how I do it is a career. And thats been going on since I was 6 years old.” Donning a wide-brimmed sombrero and with a diamond-studded guitar slung around his neck, the teenaged wunderkind made her highly anticipated performance debut at the Carte Blanche Blues Festival in Quebec City in 2007. Kicking off the set with her signature three-note intro,”Ella Of Thee I Swing,” she then went into a blend of Stevie Wonder, Natalie Cole, and Gershwin to deliver a sizzling set of original material.
