What The Media Has To Say About The Story So Far
This young vocalist from Soho sent her CD my way for review, and my-o-my has she got it goin' on. Entitled The Story So Far" Ms. Bull stretches out in both her vocalese and her subjective estimation of life on this planet...so far. Ten of the 13 cuts are (refreshingly) originals...two are perfect for those of you who have a Halloween show planned (listen to Which?" or is it Witch?"). And then there is Wake Up Time" that will fit the programming for the war (or anti-war) show that one of you is putting together. In my subjective estimation, her rendition of Twisted" is the best in this era in jazz.
Being from the Left Coast, I don't know her musicians, but they are stellar, and they too stretch out quite vividly. This is outr jazz that is still quite playable on-air. It is refreshing to witness such a young talent embrace the art form in its truest sense. Like a well put together radio show, this is one of those CDs where you keep listening to hear what she's going to do next. There is a fun, if not silly, DVD included with the release that reflects just how young this songbird is...if anything, it is fun to watch Katie and her posse storm the streets of lower Manhattan in a bit of Medieval madness. My next visit to the City will include a search for Katie Bull chant dans l'excution. --Michelle Mobley CD Review posted on the JPL list
Bull is practically reinventing the vocal wheel..." --George Harris, All About Jazz
