“The London-born, Johannesburg raised, and now New York based artist has an impressive resume, having studied at the Milan Conservatory and Boston's Berklee College of Music. But her music is ingrained in the South African jazz of her childhood, which she infuses with an energetic, invigorating blend of R&B, funk, and swing. She's assembled a first rate band, including jazz pianist Hiromi, hot percussionist Daniel Sadownick, members of Paul Simon's Graceland ensemble, and some sizzling horn players. And while Vaindirlis can easily out-diva the best of them, she displays a remarkably versatile range, whether throaty and commanding ("Call to Freedom"), velvety and effervescent ("Down by the River"), or sweet and soothing ("Dance Mama!", "Making it Home Someday"). You'll find it near impossible to sit still through this joyous, danceable debut LP.”
