CD Reviews

The best jazz album I own!
Thomas C. Nagy | Ebensburg, PA USA | 09/22/2001

"Rachelle Ferrell is a standout in a field of mediocre jazz artists. Not since Ella Fitzgerald has there been a vocalist of this caliber. Her voice is so versatile! Old standards here are presented in a fresh and renewed way. Highlights include "Inchworm" and "Bye Bye Blackbird." If you only buy one jazz album in your lifetime, make "First Instrument" that album!!"

"In my years of being a passionate music lover, NEVER, have I experienced a TALENT as AMAZING as Rachelle Ferrell. She is an INCREDIBLE GIFT of VOCAL EXECUTION and DEPTH. "First Instrument" captures the very essence of her CREATIVITY and ARTISTIC VISION. Selections to look forward to: #4-"Prayer Dance" (A RICH, ANGELIC and BREATH-TAKING ballad, which showcases the BEAUTY and EFFORTLESSLY-POWERFUL RANGE of Ferrell's DYNAMIC GIFT), #3-"Bye Bye Blackbird" (A SMOKIN', SCAT JAMMING, INSTRUMENTAL JOURNEY of PASSION and PRECISION), #1-"You Send Me" (A REFRESHING dedication of LOVE and ADMIRATION) and #6-"With Every Breath I Take" (A ROMANTIC and ENCHANTING experience that's as INTRIGUING as Roberta Flack's: "The First Time I Saw Your Face"). "First Instrument" is a STUNNING WORK OF ART, and deserves much MORE RECOGNITION than it has received. All of Rachelle's album's are ***STELLAR*** and should be given the proper PRAISE. I am GRATEFUL to be apart of the FERRELL FAMILY!!!! B-R-A-V-O!!!"

"I love good music -- especially jazz vocals. I just bought this album, and I am about to die. It is one of the best -- if not the best jazz vocal album I own (and I own tons of music). Her range is extreme (almost impossible), from a deep, almost baritony sound to the highest soprano chirp. Rachelle can scat, sing ballad, create emotion; she is the best. BUY IT!!!!!P.S. I thought I would never find anyone to match the greatness of the vocalists of the past (Sarah, Nancy, Ella);Rachelle is that person...."
