Joani Taylor is a grand Dame among jazz singers, displaying a luster in her voice that glitters with the splendor of a Queen’s crown jewels. Taylor’s sixth album In My Own Voice shows her moving from spirited swing jaunts to sultry ballads while swigging a captivating R&B clef in her vocal holster that tells you this is a woman with a sturdy backbone who possesses the vulnerability of a maiden’s heart. Produced by Taylor and Miles Foxx Hill, In My Own Voice has chiefly original material co-written by Taylor with a handful of covers. The songs exhibit the multiple facets of Taylor’s vocals while honing her singing into sculptures for audiences to behold. She sings to a timing that she hears in head similarly to country music’s Faith Hill, which causes the lyrics to spill outside of the melodic lines making her voice move with authority and autonomy from the confines of her surroundings. She is not singing to the music scores but to someone whom she has in mind, which she puts on a pedestal and serenades with the charm of a love-soaked cockatoo. The Latin flare of “Dance With Me” brings out the sultry aspects of Taylor’s register while tracks like “Compared To What” and “Just Let Go” light up with the R&B intonations of her vocal nuances which infuse the melodies with a nice shot of adrenaline.
Taylor holds her notes longer than humanly imaginable in “You Are My Sunshine” which penetrates deep into the listener’s skin, and the smooth way that she sings “The Secret” stokes a solace over the listener. Her remake of Paul Desmond and Dave and Lola Brubeck’s classic tune “Take Five” inflames a charming flirtation between herself and rapper Jay Kin. Afterwards, Taylor goes into a relaxing mode with a string of smooth torchlight melodies like “Thank You For Loving Me” featuring the lively trumpet curlicues of Brad Turner, and the “Who’s Gonna Hold Me Now” with its silk bedding of consoling piano keys played by Bob Murphy. “Lucky In Love,” penned by Taylor and Sharon Minemoto, has all the classic twinkles and cool cat strut which mark a memorable jazz standard, and the loving way that Taylor’s voice cradles the verses of “Peace Lullaby” is reminiscent of the feminine softness of Dena DeRose showing soulful caresses that feel ideal. In My Own Voice establishes Joani Taylor as a purveyor of love sonnets. Her voice delivers words of love as if they should be an everyday occurrence. Her songs seem more than wishful thoughts and ideal illusions. They seem so real as if these stories actually happened and are still happening everyday. Her album allows audiences to enter a world filled with blissful sensations and starry romances. No one in their right mind could say no to such temptation, and most of all, the human heart craves it.
