ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
While breakthroughablity may not be a word, according to Webster, Melani L. Skybell's musical talent certainly should compel the editors of today's New World Dictionary to consider adding it to the book.

Her repertoire includes traditional jazz numbers, sultry ballads, swing standards and bossa novas. With a new, unique sound of their own. Ms. Skybell's original compositions stand apart from those familiar favorites.

In order to refine her jazz style, Ms. skybell entered the highly reputable University of North Texas Jazz Studies Program. (Her classical piano studies were developed while pursuing a performance degree at Boston University) It took very little time for her to build a reputation of her own. Demand for Ms. Skybell's vocal work grew rapidly among many of the area's jazz orchestras, including a performance at the Caravan of Dreams in Fort Worth with the University of Texas Jazz Orchestra and several appearances with the Eastfield College Jazz Orchestra.

This work enabled Ms. Skybell to assemble a group of the area's most gifted musicians, with whom she now entertains at Dallas' hottest jazz clubs, hotels and restaurants, including, The Capitol Grill, The Mansion, Texas Stadium, and Sambucca's Jazz Cafe. she is also in demand outside of Dallas, having recently performed at special events in Atlanta and Jamica. As a soloist, her unique interpretation of classic jazz uplifts her audiences with rich vocal nuances and charm.

Whether she is swinging hard on her up tempos, or warming your heart with her intimate ballads, Melani L. Skybell is an exciting talent. Her musical training is extensive, as is her performance experience. Combined with her potential as a composer, Melani L. Skybell is a rising star. She possesses breakthrough qualities with crossover appeal to all generations of music lovers.

Wow! I just heard a sneak preview of Melani's newest venture!
"Life is the Song" is Melani's latest (release date mid November 2003). This is her best effort: not only the music, but the recording is nothing short of fantastic, thanks to engineer Kent Stump. She covers tunes by Sammy Cahn, Hugh Martin & Timothy Gray, Francesca Blumenthal, and other greats. Her voice is rich, mature, and full. The ensemble is smaller and the setting intimate making a real treat for Melani's fans and new listeners alike. I own all of Melani's recordings - all are a pleasure to listen to, but she has truly outdone herself here. Mark Carroll, a seasoned pro, plays piano on most of the tunes and produced the CD. All of the arrangements are Mr. Carroll and Melani's making him a very welcome addition in her well chosen arsenal which also includes Allen Rogers on bass, Gerry Beaver on drums, and Nicolas Tsolainos (Dallas Symphony Orchestra's principal bassist playing on "You Don't Know What Love Is." I am sure CD Baby will stock "Life is the Song," so watch for it, buy it, and enjoy it replay after replay. I have listened to it fifteen times since I received it last night. There are few entertainers whom I have had the pleasure of listening to that much and still want more - Melani did it.
