THAT'S WHAT SHE SAID - FLORA PURIIM - Pre listened to LP.
Reviewed in the United States on October 4, 2007
This album is Flora breaking down all the boundaries. The last album she recorded for Milestone Records, it's the most hardcore fusion of all her work. In my opinion, it's the most daring album she's done--she expanded her highly unique vocalese/scat-singing technique to the point where only a couple of tracks have lyrics. The rest feature Flora singing wordless melodies and doing some amazing things with her voice that no one else has done before or since, with nary a hint of traditional "cocktail jazz" singing.
