On her new and 5th release Dance Delicioso, Chris McNulty has done it again. A joyful dance, the music flows like a river, taking the listener along for a ride through sonic storytelling at its best. Dance Delicioso stays in the mind and begs for repeated listening. Featuring jazz luminaries Mulgrew Miller on piano, Gary Bartz and Gary Thomas on saxophones, Billy Hart on drums, Ugonna Okegwo on bass, and Paul Bollenback on guitars among others.

McNulty’s alluring title track “Dance Delicioso” crosses over between storytelling, world music sensibility and top notch jazz improvisation. Her poignant portrayals of her original “Last Farewell” and the Irish folk ballad “He Moves Through The Fair” are delicately woven among jump-for-joy versions of the classic standards “All of You” and “Star Eyes”. The truly trance-like “Meaning of the Blues” serves as the thread to round out this remarkable listening experience.

 

Truly a jazz recording for the new millennium, Dance Delicioso was released July 12th 2005.

herself as one of the elite jazz singers on the scene….”
