Multi-talented singer/songwriter, bassist and producer Sylvia Black (formerly of Betty Black/KUDU) steps into the spotlight with her smoldering solo debut single, "Walking With Fire," featuring acclaimed alto saxophonist Jaleel Shaw (Robert Glasper/Roy Haynes Quartet/Mingus Big Band) and Brazilian Girls' Aaron Johnston on drums and percussion. The track is the first in a series of planned singles for this year. “Walking With Fire" is released digitally July 28 via Frau Pink / KID Recordings.

A cinematic slice of late-night jazz-pop exotica, the feverish track (which is featured in the upcoming Dean Dempsey film Deadman's Barstool) is just a hint of the brilliance to come from the acclaimed Southern Gothic chanteuse who has collaborated with such artists as Moby, The Knocks, Kristeen Young, The Black Eyed Peas, Télépopmusik, William Orbit, Spank Rock and Santigold, and more, amassing sales of over six million units worldwide. In recent months, Black has performed successful lounge residencies at The Roxy and Happy Ending in New York.

Black will be appearing at New York's Bowery Electric club tonight, July 27, and will be performing alongside Kristeen Young during Young's residency each Wednesday in August at Los Angeles' Redwood Bar.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
