25 April 2014 FROM NEW YORK: CHAMPIAN FULTON
Cory Weeds Cellar Jazz Club @ Pyatt Hall at the VSO School of Music Presents: FROM NEW YORK CITY: VOCALIST /PIANIST: CHAMPIAN FULTON featuring Cory Weeds tenor saxophone, Jodi Proznick bass, Julian MacDonough drums.
Charismatic New York singer and pianist Champian Fulton is the talk of Manhattan. Though still in her late 20s, she's got the lived in voice that gives authority to all the classic show songs and invites comparisons with everyone from Billie Holiday to Carmen McRae. And she plays great piano. She'd have Erroll Garner checking her out. No one has created a stir like this since Diana Krall burst onto the scene.
She was tutored in jazz by Clark Terry while still a tyke and gained youthful appreciation of big bands from Red Holloway, Butch Miles and other Basie-ites. In other words, 27-year-old pianist and vocalist Champian Fulton was taught to swing by experts and, as demonstrated six years ago on her debut recording with David Berger’s Sultans of Swing, learned her lesson well. Reminiscent of another big-voiced, hard-swinging Oklahoman, Kay Starr, with scraps of Sooner State twang still evident.
As befits her musical upbringing, Fulton favors an old-school approach, recalling the bandstand era when vocalists dotted, rather than dominated, a tune. Her playing, too, hints at days gone by, echoing the round joviality of Oscar Peterson. Her latest release "Sings And Swings"opens by skillfully navigating the cross-breezes of “Tenderly,” and adds plenty of bounce to “You’re Getting to Be a Habit With Me,” a rolling “It’s Alright With Me” and a loose-limbed “I’m Gonna Sit Right Down and Write Myself a Letter."
