ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Credits: Eugenie Jones/singer/songwriter/arrangements, Bill Anschell/piano/arrangements, Clipper Anderson/bass, D'Vonne Lewis/drums, Jay Thomas/horn; Michael Powers/guitar & Ernesto Pediangco/percussion.

“In that overcrowded arena known as “female jazz singers”, Seattle-based Eugenie Jones manages to stand apart from the crowd. Ms. Jones has filled both of her outstanding albums with her own engaging compositions. This fact alone differentiates her as she is one of the very few African-American women singer-songwriters in jazz today. And finally, the lady can sing as well as she can write... Eugenie Jones has released two first-rate albums in the last three years and she is an intelligent, thoughtful composer in the tradition of Abbey Lincoln and Nina Simone. Fans of true jazz singing, it’s time for you to sit up and take notice.”
Curtis Davenport
Curt’s Jazz "Best Jazz of 2015"

"Seattle-based vocalist Eugenie Jones may have been a latecomer to the jazz world, but she displays the seasoned sensibilities of a jazz lifer on her sophomore release, Come Out Swingin'. The follow-up to her well-received 2013 debut album, Black Lace Blue Tears, the album more than lives up to its title, showcasing Jones' smoke-and-satin vocals in settings that float like a butterfly and swing like a night at the Savoy. Beyond her instantly engaging vocals and sharp rhythm instincts, Jones also happens to be a topflight composer, penning both melodies and lyrics to tunes that are completely at home in the jazz idiom. She enlists a sharp group of musicians to back her up, including pianist Bill Anschell, bassist Clipper Anderson and drummer D'Vonne Lewis.
Jazziz Magazine

“Come Out Swingin’ is the second album from the Seattle based vocalist, Eugenie Jones. An appropriate title for an album where the rhythm section displays a relaxed but propulsive swing throughout. Jones’ deep & soulful voice eases the album in gently before the rhythm section bursts in to life. Jay Thomas has a muscular saxophone tone which he uses to fill the gaps in the rhythmically playful melody of Swing Me. Thomas’ solo is packed full of bluesy inflections, bringing an ear catching accessibility to the opening number. The piece climaxes with excitingly brief vocal and drum trades. A couple of familiar standards appear on the album. All of Me opens with a well phrased bass interpretation of the melody. Bye Bye Blackbird begins in the same way and is somewhat of a feature for bassist Clipper Anderson as the piano lays out of the track. The bass intro uses impressive double stopping before playing a solo which shows a great command of bebop language.
