Doc City’s new deluxe album, Welcome to Doc City, is perfect for jazz fans. The 12-track album kicks off with “What Love Is” which has the vocalist slinking across the slow and sultry sounds. The next song “When You Are Near” is reminiscent of Luther Vandross’ “Dance With My Father” and is enjoyable.
Throughout the album, the vocalist Evelyn Wright, is a standout. This is no different on the “Sweetest Taboo” cover which the turns the melodic song into an upbeat and airy track that continues to be enjoyable.
But the musicians more than carry their weight — making it unsurprising that they’ve collectively worked with heavyweight greats, including Herbie Hancock, Nancy Wilson, Michael Jackson, Celine Dion, Garth Brooks, India Arie, Dolly Parton, Bobby Caldwell, Paul Simon, and Yo-Yo Ma.
