ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Voices" is comprised of eight original compositions and one original arrangement of a jazz standard. Many of these songs were composed in 2018 as part of Betsy Ezell's writing and recording project called "Feminine Blue", supported in part by the Greater Madison Jazz Consortium. The compositions are a reflection on what women uniquely bring to jazz and the cultural narratives around women and power. Intentionally collaborative, Betsy was the lead writer with input, editing and support from co-creators Becca May Grant (piano) and Laurie Lang (bass).

The artists on the record include members of the Betsy Ezell Quintet:
Betsy Ezell - vocals
Becca May Grant - piano
Richard Hildner - guitars
Laurie Lang - bass
Jim Huwe - drums

Virginia Mayhew (saxophone) and Roberta Piket (organ) joined the band in the studio for two tunes on this album, adding their seasoned voices and another level of sophistication to the record.

Betsy Ezell is based in Madison, Wisconsin. Find her at www.betsyezell.com.
