Welcome to the world Of Joyce Elaine Yuille an amazing new Soulful Jazz singer who is accompanied by Timo Lassy and his band on her superb debut album for the ever reliable Schema label. Joyce has deep sultry soulful tones to her voice evoking memories of the greats and the band really swing on the 13 tracks. The up tempo ‘Come With me’, ‘Follow the Sun’ and ‘Running for my love’ have that retro jazz feel that the label is known for. ‘Make it Right’ swings like crazy and reminds me of Dinah or Ella. Joyce’s version of Marvin’s melancholy ‘It’s Madness’ is absolutely beautiful. Her cover of Donny Hathaway’s social commentary ‘Trying Times’ essential and the version of Esther Phillips ‘Just Can’t Say goodbye’ is a really strong soul-jazz dancer. The killer cut though is the amazing cover of Penny Goodwin’s beautiful evocative ‘Too Soon You’re Old’ that glides along and turn comes alight when Timo and the band crank it up mid way through. This Incredible album which manages to use old school values yet remains totally contemporary and is timeless quality music. It introduces an amazing talent and is a strong contender for Jazz album of 2015.
