Robin McKelle last graced us with an album three years ago and she returns with a wonderful set of Gospel laced soulful jazz with hints of blues in the form of ‘Melodic Canvas’…a genre straddling work of subtle beauty that blends a smoky jazz atmosphere with Robin’s deep, sultry vocals to create an album of sophistication. The funky ‘It Won’t End Up’ is a highlight with its irresistible foot tapping groove, the mellow ‘Come To Me’ has a sultry, late night feel while ‘You’re No Good’ is more uptempo with some lovely organ stabs and keys helping to build the track into peaks and troughs. McKelle is joined by a soaring backing group on the uplifting ‘Yes We Can, Can’ while the rat pack vibe of ‘Lyla’ sees her assuming the moxie of a big band leader on top form. ‘The Sun Died’ is a wonderful, bluesy ballad that is revisited as bonus track sung in French at the end of the album. Excellent stuff.
