Album Notes
With this outstanding debut album Adams brings her signature free and spontaneous live sound into the studio. As the Morning Light, is a stunning portrayal of this fiery young performer. Named after one of her own compositions, Adams establishes herself as an original lyricist, composer and arranger as well as an interpreter of jazz standards.

This live session was recorded over just three days at Joby Baker’s state-of-the-art studio in Victoria, BC. The result is a fully vibrant world-class album in which one can practically taste the inspiration.

“Victoria’s ‘Queen of Scat’ will thrill you with her trademark be-bop vocals. Be prepared to fall in love with her enchanting stage presence and outstanding musicality. Having just released her sensational debut album, As the Morning Light, Adams is definitely one to watch.” (Victoria Jazz Society)

The five musicians Adams chose to accompany her rank amongst BC’s finest. Vancouver-based virtuoso pianist Miles Black and recent Order of Canada recipient Oliver Gannon (guitar) combine together to create a rich framework for Adams to soar within. Cuban trumpet sensation Miguelito Valdes adds dynamic flair with his horn, whilst Victoria’s ‘King of Swing’ bassist Joey Smith and drummer extraordinaire Kelby MacNayr anchor this phenomenal band with grace and style.

Inspired by the innovative sounds of Chet Baker, Sheila Jordan and Art Blakey, Adams demonstrates her trademark versatility by slipping seamlessly from daring be-bop scat solos (Calypso Be) into smooth bossa beats (You’d Be So Nice) and lush ballads (Save Your Love for Me). All this, topped with a gentle dose of humour as heard in Dat Dere, which describes an enchanting dialogue with an inquisitive child.

This is hip. This is cool. This is vocal jazz at it’s best.
