The debut album from vocalist Quiana Lynell is a feast of soul, gospel, R&B, groove and jazz, ‘A Little Love’ blooms with songs about searching, trying times, buoyant love, deep reflection and social action. Accompanied by a powerhouse band featuring Cyrus Chestnut on piano, Jamison Ross on drums, Ed Cherry on guitars, George DeLancey on bass and Monte Croft on vibes. Quiana Lynell has been mentored by Terence Blanchard and won the 2017 Sarah Vaughan International Jazz Vocal Competition.
Lynell sings with the voice of authority and the takeaway from the album as a whole is honesty. She’s a truth-seeking storyteller with a spirited resolve – covering a wide range of songs from Nina Simone to Chaka Khan, from Duke to the Gershwins, from Donny Hathaway to Irma Thomas; with the bookends of the album featuring songs by powerful modern artists Alina Engibaryan and Joshuah Campbell.
