I love Oleta Adams. Her voice is one in a million. My only complaint was that because of the small space and the volume of her back up musicians it was hard to hear that amazing voice. When she accompanied herself solo on piano it was sublime. I also wish she would sing more songs by other composers. Her songs are good but I've heard most of them before. Her interpretation of other people's songs are unique and revelatory. She could be the Shirley Horn of our generation.
Quotes & Highlights
- Watch a <a target="_blank" href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7KbdIl57zL4">live</a> performance of Oleta Adams singing "Get Here."
Oleta's newest album is Let's Stay Here. Oleta wrote eight of the ten songs and produced this album herself. It is a creative and evocative project with a soulful jazz influence. The songs weave through a journey of a seductive love affair, vacation bliss, an abusive relationship, and forgiveness. It also includes a cover of Nina Simone's "Feeling Good" which was used in a recent Buick TV commercial.
