Heather Ward, jazz vocals, seattle

"Honeysweet" is an exciting new release from Seattle-based jazz vocalist Heather Ward. The title track from her debut solo album, this tune features a swinging jazz-blues hybrid sound that holds true to its twelve-bar form, adorned with acrobatic improvisation and spontaneous invention that's especially evident throughout an extended series of solos. Ward is backed by a crackerjack quartet consisting of tenor sax, electric guitar, upright bass and drums, leaving plenty of space for her smoky, sultry alto to shine as she delivers wryly suggestive lyrics and even takes a turn soloing with a fiery syllabic scat performance. Jazz and blues aficionados will enjoy the spirited sound and exceptional musicianship of Heather Ward's "Honeysweet", available now on all major music platforms
