Smooth Jazz Magazine review: June, 2017: Tracey Whitney "Live At The Outpost Performance Space" ~ Keivu Knox: “When artists release a live album, there is a certain element of risk attached. Will the performance meet or exceed expectations? Will it sound right? Can the vibe of the performance be captured? In the case of Tracey Whitney’s “Live at the Outpost Performance Space,” (a New Mexico Music Awards nominee for Best Vocal Performance) the answer to all of these questions is a resounding yes!” “The trademark of a great live album is the artist’s ability to make the audience, whether in person or listening, feel as if they are part of the album. Whitney’s exchange with the audience and overall performance does just that. On the smoky “Baby, Baby All The Time,” it is easy to imagine being in the front row, taking every nuance in. From Whitney’s interplay with the band and audience, to giving each member of the band a chance to showcase their chops, there is a shared musical experience that makes every second of this song matter.” “It is great to hear artists going beyond their comfort zone and give their fans and listeners a glimpse into their musical life. Tracey Whitney on this album was able to do just that, without sacrificing any of the ability that has made her a respected name in the industry. Anyone who listens to “Live At The Outpost performance Space” will have nothing but that same respect for her, and it is well deserved.” Click here for the complete review: http://www.smoothjazzmag.com/information.php?information_id=710
