REVIEW: Ellynne Plotnick’s “I Will”

Photobucket It’s nice to hear a vocal jazz album that keeps it plain and simple, but not boring. That is what I would call I Will (Princess Monkey Music), the new album by jazz vocalist Ellynne Plotnick. The recording is plain and simple: Plotnick singing with guitar and bass accompaniment. It may bring to mind going into a coffee bar and just hearing the group with a bit of cups clingning and clanging, but you want everyone to shut up so you can hear the music. Seven of the ten songs on here are original compositions, and the title track, a Beatles cover, places the original song into a jazz style and shows why Paul McCartney‘s simple approach works in any musical context. Other highlights on this include “I’m Sorry (I Really Mean It This Time)”, and “I Want A Place In Your Heart”. With luck, you’ll find a place in your heart for Plotnick, her voice and music.
