Second instalment in the series, ‘Life II’ see Vivian Sessoms and the vibe is firmly rooted in that sophisticated vein that the first volume traded in. The swaggering, jazzy ‘The Best Is Yet To Come’ features Casey Benjamin, the soaring, gospel-soul of ‘I Can’t Breathe’ finds Vivian in incredible vocal form atop a stunning bluesy groove while the pacey, funky ‘One Thing Leads To Another’ is a tough, uptempo number that has it all: razor sharp horns, swirling Hammond, busy percussion and those powerful vocals elevating everything. ‘If Only they Knew’ brings back the calm on a mellow jazz vocal number, the slow bump tempo of ‘A Real Thing’ gives a spacey, expansive feeling while Vivian reworks Stevie’s ‘As’ to good effect – a growling bassline, multi-layered beats and touches of experimentalism keeping it inventive but never losing the feel of the original. Another highly accomplished set.
